The Business Model Canvas is a helpful tool startups can use to better understand their business. Developed by Steve Blank, it's a one-page document that helps startups work through the basic elements of a business or product in a way that identifies key issues early in the process. Early identification of potential problems allows for quick pivoting without spending money and loosing time, two things that startups are always short on!
