Strategy Tool: Business Model Canvas, your 1-page business plan

Learn how to turn from having a business IDEA to having a plan for A VIABLE BUSINESS

You have a business idea. But, do you have a business? Do you 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 may spend mere minutes. This approach allows you to more quickly identify if there are any gaps in your business plan that you may need to address. It also allows you to get your business off the ground faster, so you can test out your assumptions. This empowers you to learn and grow quickly.

Who should take this course?

  • 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
  • Business builders looking to develop an idea into a business

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!

This course includes templates, video lectures, and real-world examples. This course also includes starter templates in case you don't have a fully fleshed out business idea yet!

Important - What this course will not do:

You will still need to do the hard work, but this course will only show you the way. This is not a course with a magical make money tomorrow formula - that formula doesn't exist. Many courses teach people to do xyz and get results! But just because xyz worked for someone, doesn't mean it will work for you. This is your business idea, and no one can tell you how it is supposed to work. This course will guide you to figure out how to be successful with your business idea.

More student testimonials:

Super quick course, I was pleasantly surprised. While I was familiar with some concepts, she was able to break things down for me in a more accessible manner than reading about it had done for me up to now. I did not know about the Lean Canvas model and am looking forward to fleshing out my ideas using that as a basis. - Gina F.

Started learning about Business Model Canvases in a class and love the concept. Jeannie does a great job of explaining them in a great short and concise class. - Laura V.
