A great name helps people understand your offer, opens more doors and is a great shortcut to success.

With your company’s time and resources devoted to the nuts and bolts of day-to-day operations, branding efforts often get the short end of the stick. Having a great idea is just the beginning when creating a successful business.

Brand Strategist and President of Tapestry Strategy, Rebeca Arbona, knows plenty about this, having named everything from bourbon, tequila, P&G line extensions and baby formulas to tech startups. She will share her expertise on the ideation of creative names, the legalities of naming, specific branding resources, and more. Her presentation acts as a great opportunity to get professional help while working in a space of peers to improve your brand.

Join the fun for our “Namestorming” Happy Hour where we will transition the space into a more creative environment to group brainstorm potential names for the first five companies, first come, first served, while enjoying some beer!
