I have an O1 visa approved for my own start up company A got approved 1.5 years back. Now I renamed my company A to company B Inc. New name altogether. Is it like an amendment or the new filing ?I am justc checking my cover letter for company A. I applied as Software enginner/ developer and now I might have to change it to entreuprener and Engineer. Does it still amendment or a fresh filing ?
If the only difference is the name change and all else is the same, a amended petition may be filed. You should, however, not attempt it alone as all of co A documents should be reviewed. Consult an experienced immigration lawyer.

You will have to show that the B is a successor in interest to A and you do need to bring your O in par with the change.

This appears to qualify for an amendment. Talk to your lawyer, or any other via Skype.
