Your startup might need a business model generation app
Last week we wrote an article about what a business model does for your startup. You can read it here. We made some suggestions we find very useful for mobile startups: Business Model Canvas or Lean Canvas. Both tools do a great job.
While doing some research, we found another pretty cool tool for entrepreneurs. The Canvas Model Design combines the Business Model Canvas, the Lean Canvas, the Business Model You and Product Canvas. We have also looked in the AppStore for their mobile application and we've decided to give it a try.
The most exciting part is that you can draw an idea exactly the moment it comes to your mind. Having unlimited canvas to play with, you will be able to test your business and projects ideas. After getting feedback from users and potential investors, you can easily change the information in the canvas and email it to your team.
How the Canvas Model Design App looks like:
What else can you do with the Canvas Model Design App?
- Sketch your business model using the business apps you prefer: Business Model or Lean Canvas
- Create a new product using The Product Canvas
- Draw in the notes/ stickies
- Create an empty model whenever you need one
What's new in version 1.7.0?
- iOS 7 support
- improvements in style
- fixed text color of the stickies
- fixed problems with titles when exporting via email and importing from Dropbox
You can get this business model generation app from the App Store for $2.99. It requires iOS 5.1 and it's compatible with the iPad. If you're interested in using this kind of application on Android, we recommend the Business Model Canvas Startup. It also does a great job.
A successful startup begins with a great business model. It challenges you to know everything about your customers and constantly adapt your plans to their needs. This means that, from time to time, you have to make changes to your business models too. This kind of app helps you to quickly map, test and iterate your business ideas everywhere.
Have you ever used a business app for building your business models? Any other suggestions?
