This is a private event for fellows in the Startup Leadership Program- SF.
Wondering about the wisdom of writing a traditional business plan for an innovation new venture? You’re right to wonder- A lot’s probably going to change and you need to be in front of customers, not MS Word (or Excel, or, God forbid, PowerPoint).
The Business Model Canvas offers a lightweight but robust tool for thinking through the business and keeping the key points highly visible to you, your team, and your other stakeholders.
