Steve Blank's Business Model Canvas

Please click here to download the Business Model Canvas template, its a simple tool to visualize and test your business plan model. Its divided into 9 parts, each of describes an aspect of your business model.

How to use: In the start you will fill in each of these sections with what you have imagined about each of 9 aspects of your business model. This will of course be hypothetical if you are doing it for the first time. After this, Blank suggests, you would use standard business research techniques like interviews and surveys with your stakeholders relevant with each aspect of the model. For example, your assumed value proposition, you need to interview your prospective customers or clients whether what they think about it etc. Blanks suggests that it takes around 8 iterations to finalize your model, as after each revision, you are suppose to recheck your assumptions again... watch this video to learn how it is done.

    This Business Model Canvas is developed by Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur, not by Steve Blank. You can refer their book Business Model Generation for that.
