Welcome to another episode of Her Business is Our Business where we, Gayatri and Aparna

look at Women Entrepreneurship beyond funding – sharing expertise, experiences and tools

In this episode, we discuss and explain in detail about a tool that is paramount to any

Business, the Business Model Canvas (BMC). 

We start by explaining what a Business Model Canvas is and its important elements. Gayatri

then shares some insights and experiences from a Business planning workshop she led

recently. We also share some ideas on resources that can help you build the BMC.

Key takeaways: 

Key aspects of a business are partners, customers, revenue and costing.

Business Model Canvas is a strategic management and lean startup template/ tools for

developing new business models or documenting existing ones.

It is the cornerstone of any business and an essential tool irrespective of the size or

nature of your business.

Critical elements of BMC are the Value Proposition of your business & Customers/

target audience description.

Once the Value proposition becomes clear, everything thing will fall in place.

From the BMC evolves your daily plan and activities. It helps you prioritise. 

Tips for entrepreneurs: 

Set time aside, clear your calendar and focus on building this

Read the structure, work on it and not worry about how it shows you

Check your BMC 2-3 times a year and make minor tweaks if required

If you make any changes, ensure you go through all the squares on the BMC and see

if they align 

Many resources are available in the form of apps, blogs, software, books, case studies

that can help you build the BMC
