Quick-Start Shoreline Working Session: Lean Canvas

Learn how to fast track your next BIG idea using the versatile  Business Model Canvas™ in this hands-on QuickStart Working Session.  The Business Model Canvas™ is a tool that helps you put your key business relationships on paper in a visual, meaningful, and compelling way. Lean Canvas is both an ideation tool useful for team brainstorming and a planning tool for both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs. 

Learn to incorporate the components of the Canvas into planning and designing your next event, initiative, program, product launch, even new business idea. The Lean Canvas working session will help you:

1. Present new company initiatives to leadership with confidence. 
2. Gain team consensus faster using a visual tool where everyone’s contributions are considered.
3. Expand your reach and grow your business by uncovering new opportunities: new partnerships, new customers, and strategic distribution channels.
4. Launch new programs, product lines, and expansion plans knowing its potential return on investment and costs -- before making the leap.

Each participant will take home a Business Model Canvas template and a 5 step tool to test the feasibility of your model.
