Business Model Canvas tool

The Business Model Canvas developed by Alexander Osterwalder, is a strategy tool which can help you to create and visualize your business model.

The business Model Canvas is a simple graphical template describing nine essential components, which they refer to as the «building blocks» of an organization:
Key Partners, key activities, key resources, value propositions, customer relationship, channels, customer segments, cost structure and revenue streams.

You can easily fill in the canvas on a whiteboard or online.

This video will give you a short introduction to this tool. (In English, Hungarian texting is possible).

You will also find more information, videos and interactive tools to guide (in English, but the videos can be texted in Hungarian) you through the process at the website:
