Changing a company name is usually a pretty big decision for a business, especially if the business has been operating for many years under an older name.
Changing your Linkedin company name means that you are deciding to move away from the brands that helped your business get where it is today and take on something new, fresh, and innovative. You’ll have to be prepared for some pushback from people who don’t see the new name as any good (which could hurt potential sales or partnership opportunities) or who favor the old name.
