Startups At Web Summit 2016 | A Look at Startup Names!

By - Michael Rader

In November, a variable who’s who in the world of business will descend upon Lisbon, Portugal for Web Summit 2016. More than 50,000 attendees will be at the event, representing over 15,000 companies from around the world. Web Summit is one of the world’s foremost business events and will feature everyone from start-up entrepreneurs to some of today’s most successful executives.

Business names tend to fall into one of four categories: those that are invented, names created from a misspelling of a common word, names made from adding two existing words together, and words with a prefix or suffix added to them.

Below you will find a sampling of the businesses that will be attending Web Summit 2016. Along with the name and location of the company, you can also view their own description of the business and a link to their individual websites.

All of the companies listed have achieved varying degrees of success. Studying their names can give you insight into current naming trends and provide you with the creative boost needed to choose your own business name.

Invented Names:

Some of the most successful names in the world are completely made up. Think Google, Hulu, or Netflix, for instance. Creatively invented names can help you attract customers and keep them coming through the doors. Brand recall is extremely important for a start-up. Choosing a name that sticks in the minds of your customers is the first step in creating that recognition. Who wouldn’t want to check out a company named “Fleep” or “Quibee?”

Misspellings:

Misspellings of common words are inherently built to aid recall. This is especially true if you choose a version of a word that is considered strong and/or successful. The company “Affectiva,” for example, derives from the word “affective.” Similarly, the name “Kompete” will be quickly associated with a company that can crush the “competition.” In both of these examples, customers will form positive associations that will inevitably lead to increased brand recall.

Name:Location:Description:Name Review:Website:

Word Combinations:

Much like names derived from misspelled words, combining two common words can also be an effective way to attract patrons and build a solid customer base. Such names are easily recognized and remembered because of their basic connotations. The company “Funderbeam,” for instance, will be quickly associated with finance and the securing of capital. Another example is “SimplicityEngine,” a notable and transparent name for a web-based company that prides itself on its user-friendly abilities.

Words with the Addition of a Prefix/Suffix:

The last category of names also takes advantage of a common word as their base. By adding a prefix or suffix to an existing word, companies can give themselves a creative name that will still be easily recognized and recalled. By adding the suffix “-ful” to the base word “content,” the German company “Contentful” has created the persona of a business overflowing with the ability to make their customers satisfied. Likewise, the business “Sportify” has created a fresh and zippy name simply by adding the suffix “-ify” to the common word “sport.”
