Like Minded People
We are a networking group set up by 6 entrepreneurs in the south west of the UK. The group has expanded organically, and by referral, over the last 2.5 years to be several hundred people.
We meet three times per year and have gained sponsorship from within the network to support and sustain the event. Our online presence is managed through linkedin (http://www.linkedin.com/groups?most…gid=744577) and now meetup.com (http://www.meetup.com/Like-Minded-People/)
This means people who are entrepreneurs and people who are entrepreneurial
Entrepreneurs start up their own companies
People who are entrepreneurial may be running divisions of companies or perhaps partners in law firms
The lead characteristics are that the entrepreneurs are risk takers and also have incredible self belief. They also tend to share a restlesness with the world which is how they spot the opportunities and needs that others miss.
We want a Logo to use on the meetup.com site, the linkedin site and to print on our flyers, name badges and in meeting documents.
The current logo was picked a bit at random! Its not very clear and doesnt really carry much of a resonance with the group at present.
It is also something that is difficult to recognise from a distance.
We'd like the logo to really capture the energy and drive of entrepreneurs - people who take risks and start up enterprise with their own money, or risking their own futures to do so.
Key also is to reflect that the group is one of like minds - we find a unique peer group in the network where we can share the awkward questions about our businesses and challenges. We get advice and experience from people who we respect and who have no axe to grind when doing so.
