Workshop at TiE Bangalore. Whenever a business is established, it either explicitly or implicitly employs a particular business model that describes the architecture of the value creation, delivery, and capture mechanisms employed by the business enterprise. The essence of a business model is that it defines the manner by which the business enterprise delivers value to customers, entices customers to pay for value, and converts those payments to profit: it thus reflects management's hypothesis about what customers want, how they want it, and how an enterprise can organize to best meet those needs, get paid for doing so, and make a profit. This workshop will help entrepreneurs identify and validate their business model - which is a basis for a sound business plan. It will combine theoretical inputs with hands-on work, enabling experiential learning and validation of concepts introduced. Concepts such as "Business Model Canvas" and "Minimum Viable Product / Service" will be explored. And participants will have an opportunity to use these techniques in developing and evolving their own business concepts. If you are an entrepreneur looking at validating your business idea, or looking at scaling your business you could gain from this workshop.
