Learn how to rapid prototype new business models using the Business Model Canvas.  Used by Intrapreneurs and Entreprenuers, the Business Model Canvas is a strategic management and lean startup tool for developing new or documenting existing business models. During this practical workshop, participants will get to understand the different components of the Canvas. They will also work in groups using the Canvas to build business models that work, and to create value propositions that sell. Participants should expect that by the end of the workshop, they would have a first draft of their Canvas business model built, thus creating a solid foundation for turning their new product or service ideas into reality.
