Apart from having the opportunity to work with incredibly passionate and ambitious entrepreneurs, I had the opportunity to test out my design thinking. While working with these companies, I used an array of tools that helped push boundaries and develop creative solutions. These tools included the 6 Thinking Hats, Assumption Dumption, and the Constraints Toggle, to name a few. But the most incredibly useful tool of all was the Business Model Canvas. If you're an entrepreneur, you need to know this one.
The point is, The Business Model Canvas is dynamic and it's essential. Every startup needs it in their toolkit. Now.
