Standing out in crowded markets is necessary for survival. Our Studio companies are backed by a world-class branding team that gives them the support to be distinct in the marketplace. Meet Mollie Kuramoto: Sr. Brand Marketing Manager and Tech 25 Winner.

Building World-Class Brands in Six Months

At High Alpha, Mollie works alongside the squad to develop and launch brands for our Studio companies from the ground up. From developing the company name to creating their visual identity and website, Mollie has a unique ability to build world-class brand DNA in remarkably short periods of time.

We’re striving to build world-class brands extremely fast. It’s a unique blend of crafting something that’s flexible enough to adjust as the company continues to look for product-market fit but still feels really distinct in the market and true to who they are.

Mollie understands that speed is everything. Since joining our team, she has introduced and standardized an efficient branding process that allows our companies to launch in just six months.

Leading Our Companies Marketing Departments

Not only does she excel in constructing robust brands for our companies, Mollie also assumes the role of each company's de facto marketer during the early stages of the company.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

Beyond her impactful work with our company brands, Mollie generously provides her services to the broader Indianapolis tech community.

"Mollie guided us through a very intentional branding process that resulted in a truly world-class brand. Because of her efforts, we attracted international attendees, top-notch speakers like Moira Gunn and Guy Raz, and outside investors. This event made a significant impact on the Indianapolis tech community and the state as a whole, and Mollie played a key role in making it happen."
