Business Model Canvas for Social Entrepreneurs

University of Sheffield: Social Innovation Lab
Sheffield, 2015


I was invited to run a workshop for student social entrepreneurs that would familiarise them with the Business Model Canvas, and come away understanding how it can be a useful tool for them to think about their business ideas in a structured yet flexible fashion.

Laura supported the Social Innovation Lab by delivering an in depth and participatory session on Human Centred Design. This session was integral to the programme as it was used to really inspire and engage the students early on during the programme. Laura’s ability to both give factual information and also deliver sessions in an engaging way, made for a very productive workshop for us. She is an engaging facilitator with heaps of social enterprise knowledge. We will be looking to work with Laura again on future programmes at the University of Sheffield.
