Rarely do start-ups succeed with the first business model they try and so typically the early phases of a business are defined by the search for a business model that means survival in the short-term but, importantly, scalability in the long term.
Generating, designing and testing different business model options can happen in a variety of ways, but a quick and simple high level approach uses the Business Model Canvas (BMC).
Seeing how other businesses work on a BMC can give you great insights and inspiration, while mapping your own thoughts and plans helps you both to better understand your business and better able to communicate it to others.
In this workshop, you will:
- Explore other businesses through their Business Model Canvas
- Understand some common patterns to successful business models
- Model your own business using the BMC
- Play with alternative business models
- Share your business models using BMCs, to get feedback
This is a hands-on workshop with the opportunity to develop and play with different approaches to your business using the BMC. You’ll gain the insights you need to understand how the elements of your business work together and you will leave with a process for searching out that growth business model you need for success.
This workshop is suitable for start-up founders and team members who want a better understanding of what a business model is; how they work and what the key elements of their own model are; and want to explore other options to how they can build a successful, growth business.
