About the Smart Business Modeler

How it works

The Smart Business Modeler is a one stop business modelling solution for start-ups, corporations and educators who want to think outside the box, ‘test-drive’ different business models and find novel ways of creating and capturing value.

The Smart Business Modeler helps you in four steps to get to your business model:

  1. Learn about the process of business modeling
  2. Build your business model
  3. Transform business models using the pattern database
  4. Generate a shareable profile

Features

The SBM has many useful features for your business modeling process.

  • Fast drag & drop business modelling
  • Easy editing
  • Comparison of multiple versions
  • Innovate your business model with 170+ patterns
  • Create a shareable profile of your idea

Why you should use the Smart Business Modeler

75% of venture-backed startups fail (Entrepreneur.com), and the failure to create a sound business model is a ‘top 10 reason’ for startups to fail (CB Insights). In fact, lack of experience in new business model accounts for 19% of disrupted industries (KPMG). The idea of the Smart Business Modeler and its unique pattern database is to avoid cognitive biases. Our experience showed that we often fall back into proven patterns. Patterns provide guided thinking outside the box.
