Sam Ahmed, VP of Marketing and Communications at NGP Capital, emphasized the importance of a distinctive brand, saying, "Ultimately, a well-crafted brand allows a VC firm to differentiate itself from a ‘sea of sameness’ in order to attract exceptional founders to invest in. That’s why we partnered with an agency that understood the nuances of our industry, our aspirations for the future, and most importantly was not afraid to create a distinct look and voice."
Daria Gonzalez, former VC, and Co-founder of Wunderdogs, echoed the sentiment saying, "The traditional VC landscape is evolving, and it's exciting to see firms like NGP Capital leading this transformation. Historically, this industry preferred a traditionally ‘safe’ visual identity. The award signifies an important move forward for VC branding, and we're humbled to be instrumental in it."
