Imagine American Idol for startup companies. That's what I hope to do one day. I am trying to build an incubator that will also one day inspire an entire generation of people to move into startups.
As the founder of StartupBus (which has a bus with wifi signals) I have a strong affinity to that logo. The attached file is StartupBus which has a heavy link to StartupHouse, but no means should that brand force constraints in creativity on the StartupHouse brand.
The concept in my head that I like is a simple house done with a brush stroke (ie, triangle roof with square base) and wifi signals attached to it (like the StartupBus logo). But the reason I'm posting on 99 designs, is that this is a brand that will generate a lot of exposure and I want it to be special, so open to ideas.
I like simple, recognisable, and fun.
A completely different concept but that I like a lot is this one http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/83970
I like that because
a/ there is a TV/film element to the business which is what StartupHouse is about
b/ the building it will be in looks more like that
c/ the greys and black. Simple but very powerful.
Maybe try to do a unique spin off that base. I don't know what, but hopefully you can think of something. If it's any help, I'm more focussed on a distinctive look that's simple and extensible than needing to full convey meaning (ie, if you can put an S or wifi elements instead of the film then great, but not if it makes the detail complicated)
