How BillHillestad started their logo design journey

Company name

Venture 3.0 but the url(s) are venture3dot0.com / v3dot0.com

Overview

Venture 3.0 was just founded by a couple of long time serial entrepreneurs to encourage a new kind of business they call 3.0 ventures. It is based on a 10 point manifesto/scorecard/evaluation of what new businesses should look like in the critical early stages. The key to this network is the whole idea of transparent ventures that are shaped and guided by "the network". The model will actually share stock with participants in the network. It will also provide very unique sources of capital and other resources for ventures that can raise their 3.0 score.

It is all about everything web, new, social media, tech, transparent, consumer centric, etc., but with an emphasis on moving past the white noise and confusion of all that is web 2.0. Good entrepreneurs need a new resource. One that isn't confusing, self serving or weighed down with commercial fluff. They need a way to make their businesses better, to access investment capital, to test ideas and concepts without cost and to learn and collaborate with likeminded professionals. Investors need a simple and objective way to evaluate business opportunities.

This will be the home of the "open source business startup"

"Where Risk goes to Die"

"Companies by the people, for the people"

Once we get a logo, I think I want a t-shirt designed next:

"Venture 3.0 - Do your business in public"

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

4 of them

1. Entrepreneurs who want help or funding with their ventures or concepts
2. Leaders for new start-ups. Kick ass CEO's who get modern web business, social media, viral marketing, truly putting the customer first, and pinching pennies for a few months in the beginning.
3. Strategic Partners. Could be technical or design resources, a company to house a start-up, a key introduction, a marketing partner or 100 other kinds of strategic fit.
4. Investors. Not the old school venture cap guys that still believe in huge investments, high risk, long runways and the like. Angels and groups that love the high reward to risk ratio of a 3.0 venture.

Requirements

Want a very cool, high tech, modern logo on a background like a website header (the background seems like an integral part of the look). The logo also needs to be simple enough that it can be embroidered on a shirt. We haven't stumbled on to a tag line we want to be married to but we should at least have the font and color or design elements so we can keep testing more of them out.

Biggest issue is probably that the Groupe is "Venture 3.0" but the url's we have are Venture3dot0.com, Venture3point0.com, v3dot0.com or v3point0.com so it may be smart to incorporate the URL of choice into the logo somehow - open to thoughts, ideas or opinions.

How about "Go Big - Risk Little - Have Fun - Do Good" or "Doing your business in public = higher profits and lower risk" - Nope, think it will have to come from the network.

We don't have a primary color scheme yet so no requirements there. Might be cool to have something that could work in different colors.

Word/thought association: Future, evolved, network, collective, group, web, next, shared, open transparent, advanced, tech, simple, obvious, good, right, online, together, capital, investment , income, wealth, societally conscious

Sorry guys, I know I am verbose and pretty sucky at this stuff but there are only two of us starting this thing and my partner is the anal legal & finance guy so it could be worse.
