Session 1 – Designing your Business Model
This session will introduce participants to Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas and the key questions to consider when designing a business model. This is a very hands-on session; all participants are expected to work on several business model designs, including their own business model, before the session is over.
Deliverable: A business model designed around the participant’s value proposition
May 29 @ 8:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
