The site will be marketed to students who like Gary V, Ryan Holiday, Seth Godin start up school, y-combinator, TED talks, Tim Ferris podcasts, etc. The site will include original content, news, studies, and tools for those interested in startups, business careers, and life skills needed in these fields.
The site will be mobile optimized and want a logo that fits nicely into an app icon tile for eventual app production. The logo with text will go on the website, the logo without text will go on the app icon.
Below is a very rough draft of a logo with e and c emphasized. I also like the university of Miami's U for something like this. Open to recommendations for color.
