Business Model Canvas Workshop

January 19 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

This hands-on interactive and creative workshop will provide an overview of the Business Model Canvas methodology and is the business planning we use primarily at the Business Advisory Centre Durham (BACD). It’s an excellent one page visual map of the essential components of a business. Originally developed by Dr. Osterwalder – this method has become a standard way to develop and communicate your business model in the Silicon Valley.

The Business Model Canvas is extremely useful for describing, designing, and summarizing a start-up idea and business.  During this workshop, we will cover the 9 different components of the Business Model Canvas.  

By the end of the workshop, you will have the first draft of the canvas business model built, thus creating a solid foundation for the start of your business.

Attendees will receive a poster size copy of the Business Model Canvas.
