Demystify business research with the Business Model Canvas

When: Tuesday, Feb. 9, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Where: Gerstein Instruction Lab, 2nd floor, Gerstein Science Information Centre

Are you working on a business idea? The Business Model Canvas is an alternative to a long, wordy business plan used by startups around the world. It's a great way to summarize all the key elements of your product or service in a single page. It’s also a great tool to make sense of exactly what information you will need for your business planning – and how to find it at the library.

Attend this workshop to:

  • Learn the basics of the Business Model Canvas and how it applies to your product or service
  • Understand which free and proprietary library databases are the best fit for your canvas
  • Develop search strategies that will save you time and eliminate frustration, and
  • Get market, industry, or competitor information you can use for your startup or small business venture
