Attend Workshop on – Introduction to Business Model Canvas for Social Enterprises

Villgro in partnership with Headstart brings you an Un-convention|Speaker Series workshop on ‘Introduction to Business Model Canvas for Social Enterprises’ by Prof. Ramesh Loganathan.

About the Session

Social entrepreneurs – and the organizations they launch – apply fresh, often risk-taking approaches to create innovative, scalable solutions to address problems where conventional practices simply aren’t sufficient. Through this session we explore how to customize a business model canvas for a social enterprise. We will be using the template as a tool to visualize and build the global vision of an organization while accounting for impact.

A business model canvas serves many purposes, it provides a complete overview on what an enterprise has set out to do and how to do it, it is also useful in working out a new value proposition or pivoting from an existing idea.
