There have been quite a few instances lately where people have posted open ended question (e.g. how do I make my business work...). This type of question will rarely get responses. Members of the Hub are much more likely to respond to your ideas rather than to do your work for you. You chances of getting responses will be much better if you post your ideas (a canvas would be even better) about how your business could work, then seek input or feedback on those ideas.

Also, remember, the Hub is a community for discussing business model innovation. Threads have been wandering into areas that are not part of this domain. We will be more attentive to removing inappropriate discussions.Persons who persist in posting non-business model material will have their membership suspended.


On the Business Model Generation web site they have announced a schedule for the 2-day Masterclass workshops with Alex. The  workshop is a tremendous opportunity to spend time with the BMG guru gaining insights and ideas.

Firm dates:

London, UK, Oct 29-30, 2015

Dates to be confirmed: more details available here

Sep 2015- Hong Kong, China

Sep 2015 - Munchen, Germany

The Business Model Innovation Hub is where the management book bestseller Business Model Generation was written in collaboration with 470 participants.

Now the Hub is open to every visionary game changer, and challenger interested in business models. It is the place to be to exchange knowledge and experience on business model innovation.

Let us create value together and make outmoded business models history.
