  • Led by Anica Zeyen and the Enterprise Hub team
  • Master Class Workshop - A business model is basically how our business is structured and delivers products or services; how the business creates value; and how the business makes money. Business models are hugely important for us to intimately understand our businesses and prepare to innovate and adapt to technological growth or other external (or internal) changes. By compartmentalizing the complex interlinkages of our businesses and examining them within a frame that emphasizes our value proposition and operating model, a business model provides detailed understanding which can help us find a way to improve our performance. But how can we compartmentalize and examine the complexities of our lives to enhance performance? The journey of an entrepreneur is filled with twist, turns, and many challenges—using a business modelling mindset helps us make sense of these twists and turns. In this workshop we equip you with the tools to incorporate business model thinking in your own lives.
