Podcast #34 - Visibility And Branding

Three weeks into Fledge14 (the fourteenth session of my conscious company accelerator) and just about everything we've done is invisible: business planning, financial modeling, learning the realities of funding, and dozens of meetings with mentors are in-progress. What is visible are the three new company names, three new logos, and one refreshed logo. (Re)Branding is the most visible change we make with startups at Fledge, and the most visible aspect of any business plan. In addition to this week's discussion of that process, you can see the results of this effort and historic efforts like it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YQ5DNageCQ Post your questions to www.quora.com/profile/Luni-Libes Read the book at lunarmobiscuit.com/the-next-step See the results of The Next Step at youtube.com/fledgellc More advice at lunarmobiscuit.com/blog Music by Kevin MacLeod - incompetech.com

Podcast #32 - When did you start? and Complexity!

When did you start your startup? When exactly is Day 1? How do you get from the simple startup you have now to the complex companies you see around you? This week we talk about the fuzziness around when a startup gets started and the process of learnings that turn a simple startup business plan into a highly complex company. Along the way we'll ask the question of how Fledge14 is or isn't the fourteenth session of the namesake accelerator. TL;DR; it's complicated!
