Recently Named Businesses

- a bar in a street food music led venue.: We are a operator in London, UK and have a couple of bars at a venue called Pop Brixton. Pop Brixton has used recycled shipping containers and reclaimed materials to transform an empty plot of land in the heart of Brixton, South London, into a thriving community space that is now home to around 50 local businesses. Our members include street food businesses, retail boutiques, creative studios, social enterprises, a youth radio station and a community barbershop. We operate two bars this site: 1) The first bar sells locally brewed beers from independent businesses. We have names this bar Brixton & Friends. 2) The second is what we are looking for a name for. This bar will be selling international branded beers/spirits/cocktails. Eg - Heineken, Red Stripe, Guiness, etc. Below are some parameters around what we would like the name to be around: - The site is made out of shipping containers. Our bar is the same, we operate from a 40ft container. We thinking linking this to travel or something with international brands could be cool. - We don’t want the name to be linked to the word “Pop” and want it to have it’s own identity that sources international brands but is still part of the community. - The site is a very hip and cool place to be. So we are looking for cool catch name. Nothing sophisticated. - I would suggest looking at some pictures of the site to understand the vibe of the space Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
- healthy fast food vegan/vegetarian chain: We want to open a new vegetarian fast food restaurant that is also mostly vegan. We want to compete directly against the big chains which peddle fatty and unhealthy foods to people. Our foods will all be baked or pressure cooked, never will anything be fried in fatty oils. We'll have vegan patties with different flavors that will make sandwiches, and we'll also have salads, pizzas, and burritos/tacos all made with vegetarian ingredients. We will bake all our own goods in the store each day like Subway does, however we will use only whole grains and whole flours. All our food will be balanced between grains and legumes so that it contains a full 16 amino-acids of protein like meat has. Some of our side dishes will include air-popped popcorn, fresh baked crackers, and daily baked corn bread wedges. We will also have monthly specials that offer vegetarian dishes from around the world from such countries as India, Italy, France, Mexico, China, etc. We will be environmentally conscious, send all our unclaimed food to homeless shelters each day, and send our spoiled food to farm compost sites. We will prepare many foods ahead of time so that our drive-through and counter sales will be as fast or faster than the major fast food companies of today. Our foods will have only healthy avocado oil or olive oil and will be the recommended 20% calories from fats, not the 45% or more fat like in fatty fast foods of today. Our prices will always be significantly lower than fatty fast food prices, and we will focus on wealth creation opportunities in poorer areas as well as hunger relief efforts around the world. We will have franchises around the world and encourage ownership of our shops by people of all different backgrounds, languages, and cultures.
- cloud consultancy: Help small and medium enterprises (>25 staff) implement a high-performance culture. The priorities are decided based on a maturity self-assessment of 28 traits of high-performing organisation, i.e. fact-based. The improvement is focussed on management behaviours and leadership. New, high-performance habits are learned by a proven weekly accountability process. Team members hold each other accountable, not the manager nor the consultant. The consultant is there to coach the team and the business owner to get the maximum from the process. The entire process is done online, e.g. the self-assessment is an online tool, the weekly accountability sessions are via Zoom/Teams (etc). This allows for the frequent yet short team and individual coaching at an affordable price. Frequency and quality are critical in building habits. Feel of the product and company name: - different (I have been thinking about O-cubed --> Odd One Out) - no-nonsense - succinct and laser-sharp plan followed by action rather than exhaustive plans - learning these skills to be able to pivot the company when needed - fact-based - consultant 'has been in your shoes' and is right by your side every step of the way - behaviour and people focussed, tools are used how they are intended: tools to be used correctly by people not as a solution to everything The model will be a subscription model for 1 year. Below a more detailed description of the process: The process is based on an unbiased maturity measurement (self-assessment) that is performed by a representative sample of the employees. The assessment measures on28 traits of high-performing companies. Unbalance between the 28 item's scores and unbalance between different parts of the organisation point towards weaknesses in the culture. The result of the assessment is advice on what traits to improve the company's culture, which leads to unprecedented performance. Based on this assessment the MT of the company makes a plan to improve 2-4 of these traits. My company reviews that plan and coaches the MT to make it sharper. The plan will involve 4 'sprints' of 3 months each with specific and measurable targets. Each team member commits to new behaviours that he/she must show to make the change in the management team and the departments that they manage. Each quarter the lessons learned are collected and shared in the organisation. The next target is started after adjusting if needed
