This was a fun week with my college entrepreneurship students. I taught the business model canvas, and so I had them create business model canvases in teams for the ventures that they have conceptualized.
This exercise is not just a fun exercise or teaching method but can surely aid every entrepreneur out there. I can tell you that as an educator it helps to view things on paper and constructing a huge business model canvas is a great help. I have my students use the post its to make notes and changes easily as it allows creativity without commitment and as any entrepreneurs knows one’s mind is constantly swirling.
I thought that I would try a little something different today and post a voice log! I hope you like it. I briefly discuss my idea for an entrepreneurship academy. I am eager to hear your feedback.Visit my sister site at tamucoaching.com for entrepreneurship coaching, business plan writing and entrepreneurship courses.
