In my previous post, SP 2013: Some new DelegateControl additions to the SharePoint 2013 master pages, I talked about how you could use the new delegate controls in the master page seattle.master to modify a few things in the SharePoint UI, including the text in the top left corner saying "SharePoint". If your goal is simply to change the text, or hardcode a link without the need for any code behind, you could do it even easier with PowerShell.

Change the SharePoint text using PowerShell

Here's a short PowerShell snippet you can run to customize the text:

$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication http://tozit-sp:2015
$webApp.SuiteBarBrandingElementHtml = "Awesome Text Goes Here" 
$webApp.Update()

Before the change:

After the change:

A SharePoint site showing a custom text in the top left corner.

Enjoy.
