On September 28th, For Youth Initiative is hosting part II of our IGNITE Your Idea series in partnership with Inspired Initiative. In part I: Design thinking, participants were able to explore their idea from the ground up. In part II, participants will be taking this idea further by creating a business model canvas. It is a model that is extremely useful for describing, designing, and summarizing a start-up idea and business. Through this workshop participants will be able to draft the canvas business model.
Through this KEM attendees will be able to be:
- Think innovatively about their idea
- Draft business model canvas
- Share and exchange knowledge with participants
This session will be facilitated by:
