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.
This workshop is for startups who have started a canvas and are looking to test assumptions against market research and other resources. Participants will be expected to have a canvas prepared before attending the session.
In this session, you will:
- 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
This workshop is part of an Entrepreneurship Research Skills Co-Curricular Record as recognized by the University of Toronto. They are open to all U of T students, faculty, and staff. A valid UTORid is required to access library databases. Registration is required.
