The Lean Canvas is a strategic management and lean startup template, that is used to develop and document a business model. The template is a visual, one-page chart with elements describing a firm's or product's value proposition, infrastructure, customers, and finances.
The one-page structure of the Lean Canvas make it inherently simple, extremely effective and easy to maintain. The application scenarios are endless: Angel investors use the Canvas to help capture and evaluate a startup pitch. Sales persons use the Canvas to create one-page company summaries of prospective clients. Executives use the canvas as a tool to infuse lean startup thinking into their organisations.
As an introduction to the concept, we recommend the Udemy course by Ash Maurya, the creator of the Lean Canvas.
While freely available online courses can help you progress, they are by definition generic in the context and non-interactive in the delivery. We designed the Neos Chronos Lean Canvas Workshop to go beyond the theoretical concept and generic examples. We bring you together with expert advisors, allowing you to access their wealth of business experience and receive personalised advice on questions specific and relevant to your idea / business model. All of this in a confidential and supportive setting.
Entrepreneurs requiring personalised advice and guidance.
Intrapreneurs using Lean Startup methods to launch propositions.
Executives who want to introduce startup thinking into their strategy, sales, marketing organisation.
