Discover more about the Business Model Canvas

The Business Model Canvas (BMC), created by Alexander Osterwalder, is a widely adopted Template that permits companies and start-ups to describe, invent and innovate their business model via its building blocks and their interactions. 

We recommend the use of the BMC to describe your idea, however, we also accept ideas descriptions made via other formats.
