Albuquerque, NM 87109

Writing a business plan is very time consuming and one is never sure it includes all the proper elements.  In addition, due to changing market conditions, the Plan can be out of date shortly after generation. 

A new alternative is to use a one-page Business Model Canvas, to capture the elements of a business startup, which can be updated daily until the desired business model is firmed up.

This workshop will cover the process of generating a marketable business idea and an overview of how to take this idea to market profitably using the Business Model Canvas as a scaffold for quickly viewing these elements.
