Project description

Startup Cisco:  We are a team inside Cisco that helps other internal and external teams (innovation groups or startups) by providing methodology and mentoring so they can be more successful in materializing their ideas.
We don't want to compete or replace other innovation efforts: just want to help them go faster increasing their success rate. A catalyst across startup life cycle. Maybe, we would use it  like an "intel inside(R)" or "Made with Lycra(R)" type of logo that can "coexist" with other "brands".
****Feel free to step out of the Cisco's bridge icon. We would prefer a simple Icon, more than typeface variations of the name. It should visually convey the idea we are helping throughout a life cycle, or that we are helping achieve more success, or bring speed.****
Note: Brand is "Startup Cisco", not Cisco Startup.
