The Method

Most brand consultants barely scratch the surface of your startup. They leave you with lengthy, zero-evidence documents that say, "We're innovative, excellent, and people-driven." Not very helpful, is it?

At the Phoenix Brand Consultancy®, we offer a unique brand strategy method rooted in evidence. We first collect data about your brand, interview founders and loyalists, and check on the competition.

After the audit comes the actual strategy in the form of an intensive workshop. Strategic thinking always happens with you in the room. Our goal is to make tough choices to carve out your unique positioning.

On the second workshop day, we involve your entire team. We immediately bring the new strategy to life with brainstorming and prototyping.

Not sure if you need a new brand strategy? Start with just the audit!

FAQ

How many employees can participate in the workshop?

On the first day of the Phoenix Brand Transformation Workshop, we work with the smallest inner circle of deciders. We recommend a maximum of three people, ideally only the Co-Founders or CEOs. On the second day, you can involve a broader range of people. We recommend up to eight people in higher management roles.

I’m ready to start! What’s my next step?

Fantastic! The next step would be to schedule an initial call with us here. The purpose of this call is to confirm that we’re a good fit to work together, discuss the project timeline (depending on your goals and our availability) and then we’ll send over the proposal for you to sign.

How much does working with you cost?

Our services are designed for pre-seed and seed stage startups with $500K-$2M in investment. After a call and talking about your needs and goals, we'll make you an offer with detailed pricing. A general rule of thumb is to spend about 5–15% of your total startup budget on a branding project.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, we offer startup-friendly payment plans. We'll tell you more about your options during our call.

Do you offer discounts?

We offer significant price advantages for marginalized founders to help them navigate the funding gaps. You'll find more information about our pricing structure here.

How do we know you are the right fit for us?

That's a great question. Book a strategy consultation before a bigger project. That is the best way to find out if we like and trust each other.

Do you only work with women?

No. But we prioritize startups with at least one female or non-binary co-founder or c-level executive. These marginalized groups of entrepreneurs are widely underfunded, overworked, and undervalued. We dedicate our energy to them. We're happy to connect you with highly-qualified professionals to join your c-ranks.

Which countries do you work with?

The Phoenix Brand Consultancy is based in Munich Germany (come see our beergardens ;)). We work remotely and collaborate with startups from Europe and the US.
