Business Model Canvas (BMC)

The Business Model Canvas (BMC) is a strategic management tool that helps you quickly and easily define, articulate and communicate your business idea and concept.

It is a one page document that works through the fundamental elements of your business, product or service and structures your idea in a coherent way, making connections between what your idea is and how to turn it into a business.
