A business model describes how your business creates, delivers, and captures value. Before you can create a business plan and financial forecast, you need to understand your business model. The business model canvas is a great tool for developing new or documenting existing business models. It is a visual chart with elements describing your business model and assists you in aligning your activities by illustrating potential trade-offs.

Learn how to use the business model canvas in Design Your Business Model on Wednesday, March 20, 3-5pm at Impact HUB San Francisco. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss the different elements of a business model and you will develop your business model canvas.
