The business model canvas has 50 questions to help you create your initial company strategy

The beauty of the business model canvas is that it comes blank and uncomplicated. You may fill it up as you see fit in this manner, and all of your company ideas will be displayed on one page.

The numerous videos in the complete business model canvas course go through the questions that may help entrepreneurs fill up the canvas in great depth. These are pretty straightforward and reasonable questions, and for the sake of convenience, I’ve compiled them into one article.

There’s no need to be intimidated by the number of questions; you don’t have to answer or respond to each one. Only respond to those that seem to be relevant to you and your goal, as well as those that assist you in determining your next actions. Of course, you are free to ask any additional questions that come to mind.

The following are the questions that will assist you in filling up each column in the business canvas model:
