Purpose
The purpose of this thesis is to conduct an exploratory study, in order to get a better understanding of brand identity relevance, creation and building across a diverse sample of countries and start-ups.

Method
This study is an exploratory research using a constructionist ontological approach. Semi-structured interviews are aimed at gaining an in-depth understanding of the analyzed sample. However, this qualitative method technique is subjective and non-quantifiable.

Conclusion
The creation of a brand identity can be an extremely valuable tool in the creation a financially viable company according the previously conducted research. Arguably, this holds for start-ups in business incubators as well. This study concludes that not enough importance or efforts are placed in the establishment of brand identity as a priority for start-ups. (Less)
