Elevate your start-up strategy with our Business Model Canvas Session

Cumberland Start Up

Do you have a business start-up plan that just needs a shove to make it a reality? We know there is a wealth of talent across our county. The world is looking for your authenticity. That unique experience that comes from someone running a business with heart, with feeling, with purpose.   We are here to help you make that business plan a reality.

Thanks to the support of Cumberland Council and Cumbria Business Growth Hub we have the opportunity to pilot a Business Model Canvas day for a group of budding Cumberland Entrepreneurs free of charge.

What is the Business Model Canvas Day?

Our exclusive Business Model Canvas session is designed to unleash the full potential of your start-up. This in-person, intensive workshop led by Jacqui Jackson & Keith Jackson (Thomas Jardine & Co) is tailored to sharpen your business strategy for success.  Please come prepared to work hard on your business plan, this is not a talk at session, this is a session where you will be expected to do most of the work.  So, if you are serious about your start-up idea this is for you.

The Day:

Date: Tuesday 20th February

Time: 9.30am to 3.30pm

Price: Fully funded by Cumberland Council

Venue: The Guild, Abbey Street, Carlisle

Dive deep into the Business Model Canvas with interactive exercises and expert guidance. So on the day, if you work hard, at the end of the session, you will:

* Know your customer
* Know what type of relationship you want with your customer
* Know the value you add
* Know how you will communicate with customers
* Know who could help you build your business
* Know what your key activities will be
* Know the costs involved
* Know if you’re charging for everything you need to

  • You will take away your own business plan in the form of an A1 Business Model Canvas for hands-on application as you move your business forward. You’ll also get the opportunity will network and brainstorm with fellow entrepreneurs in large and small group settings and finally walk away empowered with refined strategies to drive your start-up forward.
