LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Wildcat Angels(TM) a highly-selective, membership-based network of business people interested in learning about new startup companies in the Chicago-area on a regular basis in a private setting. (People who do these types of investments are generally called "angels") These angels invest their own money in these companies and also offer business strategy assistance, advice, and other connections to help the business become successful. Wildcat Angels arranges regular dinner meetings where high potential new businesses present their business ideas to the angels in the hopes of receiving investments.
The group is called "Wildcat Angels" because many of the organizers and principals have ties to Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, right outside of Chicago. THE GROUP IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY. The Northwestern University wildcat mascot and logo (see http://nusports.cstv.com/ or http://www.northwestern.edu/uservices/do... should NOT be incorporated in the design in any way.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need a logo that can be used for all print and internet marketing efforts. We will have a web site and also printed marketing materials that will incorporate the logo.
We made need more stuff afterwards (letterhead, business cards, etc.), but this is the critical item right now.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Angels by definition are wealthy. (They must meet minimum income and/or net worth requirements as determined by the federal government in order to qualify as "accredited investors".) Typically, they are successful entrepreneurs, former business owners, or CEO's of major companies. Their demographics generally skew older (40 - 60) and male, but that is changing a bit.
We want targets to think of a high-end, high-caliber group. The group seeks to develop a reputation for having high caliber members who are really ready to put their own money into deals. The group also wants members to believe that the companies who present at dinner meetings are strong investment opportunities with high potential.
WE LIKE THESE EXAMPLES:
Please be creative.
The logo should probably include some shades of purple. We don't like intricate or complicated designs and the designs don't necessarily have to have either a "Wildcat" or an "angel" or "halo" in them, though we are open to designs that do.
A list of other similar groups in the US, with links to each group's website and their logo is given at http://www.angelcapitalassociation.org/d...
THESE GROUPS SHOULD NOT SERVE AS EXAMPLES FOR WHAT WE WANT AND ARE ONLY GIVEN SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT OTHER GROUPS HAVE DONE.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE THIS IN OUR PIECE:
We want a clean, sleek design that includes the name of the organization in some way, with a preference for "Wildcat Angels" versus "WA". Feel free to use your imagination.
