On November 14th, Youri Sawerschel presented to an audience of technology and science based start-ups, the potential of branding in a B2B context. “B2B branding has been underestimated and underused for a long time but this is now changing fast” says Youri Sawerschel. Drawing on his work with B2B brands in the industrial, financial and technology sectors, Youri Sawerschel explained how branding can drive growth for B2B companies. He adds: “While features and specifications matter a lot in B2B, so do reputation, perceived value and awareness”.
