Session on Naming and Positioning

Session on Naming and Positioning

Ibtikaar organized a session on “Naming and Positioning” for the startup companies on 12th October 2015. The training was conducted by Mr Omar Ansari. He stressed on the perceived product-market fit, but were overcome by competitors in part because of ineffective positioning and branding. Early in the life of any startup, finding a simple yet meaningful name and determining an effective branding strategy can contribute immensely to its success - or if not done correctly, its failure. He also explained that focusing on naming and positioning is crucial for startups to gain traction especially if a startup is entering a crowded market, so it is essential to devote the time and effort necessary to get it correct.
