Collaborative Sandbox – An introduction to Lean Canvas (Meetup on July 3)

In this Lean Canvas Workshop, guests got a first glimpse of the Lean Startup methodology and  learned how to document their business model in a 1-page document.

• Capture  business model in a portable 1-page diagram. The Lean Canvas is the perfect format for brainstorming possible business models, prioritizing where to start and tracking ongoing learnings.

• Save  months of wasted effort and the frustration of building something nobody wants, by learning how to take the right action at the right time.

The Lean Canvas is an adaption from the original Business Model Canvas by Ash Maurya. It was developed through rigorous testing of the Lean Startup, Customer Development and Bootstrapping techniques, and has been successfully applied to dozens of products ranging from b2c, enterprise, clean tech and no-tech products.

What is Collaborative Sandbox?

Our goal is give hand you tools, which prepares you to create change. Instead of just discussing the next interesting topics in organizational or societal change, we want to dig deeper: play, test and make first hand experiences. Then, share, reflect and get smarter- together!
