Quick-Start Shoreline Working Session: Business Model Canvas – Customer Focus
Have you heard of the Business Model Canvas? Have you tried to use it to define your next big idea, but ended up staring at a – well – blank canvas? This Quick-Start Working Session is the first in a series that will help you use this visual planning tool to help you uncover new possibilities, define top opportunities, and create a visual game plan to get you there.
This Business Model Canvas workshop will help you:
- Identify your top current customers and uncover new ones.
- Create a visual representation of your key partners, top customers, and channels to take your venture to the next level.
- Take home a world-renowned business planning tool that is both easy to use and paints a picture of your future business potential.
Business planning is future planning – a Business Model Canvas is another tool for your business and professional development toolkit that works! Simple, useful, proven and fun – this will be a great kick-off Quick-Start for 2016.
Goal of the Quick-Start Working Sessions
To provide our SCC Business Accelerator Community with access to leading experts and cutting edge business tools that can close the GAP in idea-to-expansion knowledge. These workshops will give start-ups, teams, students and leaders a chance to gain practical knowledge, as well as engage in hands-on training, networking, and knowledge sharing in a safe and collaborative environment that elevates the playing field for all who participate.
