Developing a business model for growth requires a different logic, mind-set, and culture. This is what Alexander Osterwalder, author of Business Model Generation, provides with his Business Model Canvas—a highly visual, transparent, innovative yet pragmatic way to map, analyze, design, and question your business model. At this groundbreaking session, Osterwalder will show you how to use your business model to strengthen your business and achieve a competitive advantage.

“At GROWCO, entrepreneurs have the chance to get together with their own kind, other highly ambitious company builders, to trade ideas, network, and learn from the bigwigs of the entrepreneurial world,” says Jane Berentson, editor of Inc. “Attendees come away from Inc. conferences inspired and energized.”
