About This Class

You have a business idea, but you don't know what are the different pieces you need to put in place to make it a viable business...

This is where the Business Model Canvas comes in. The Canvas models out the different pieces of your business and shows you how the pieces fit with each other. Essentially, it is a one-page business plan.

So instead of spending hours and days writing out a 100-page business plan, you will spend minutes. This approach allows you to more quickly identify if there are any gaps in your business plan that you ma need to address. It also allows you to get your business off the ground faster, so you can test out your assumptions.

This course is for:

  • Entrepreneurs who are looking to start a business
  • Small business owners who are looking to grow their business by bringing to market new products
  • Business owners who are looking for a systematic method to diagnose their business and better understand the fundamental pieces that make their business possible

Want to get started with your business? Want a method that helps you identify what it may take to turn your business from idea to reality?

This course is for you! Enroll and get started today!

I am looking for a mentor to guide me how to write a good business plan. After watching this video i have a better idea how to write.

The course is a bit frustrating as the lecturer is merely repeating the instructions of a Business Model Canvas without putting very much in perspective the reason they exist. The "case study" part is slightly more instructive but it only pass on the surface of it. Recommended for people who already know what a BMC is - but not very practical for those who never heard about it.

Agency which keeps learning

easy to understand what BMC is all about.
