The day-long event provided an opportunity for students and business owners to develop a Business Model Canvas (BMC) based on their own business concepts. The Business Model Canvas is a strategic management and startup template for developing new or documenting existing business models. It is a visual chart with elements describing a firm's or product's value proposition, infrastructure, customers, and finances.
Guest business owners shared specific strategies related to the BMC and how their businesses align with each of the sections of the BMC and worked directly with the high school teams to develop the components of the BMC.
High school students from Logan High School, Nelsonville-York High School, Sheridan High School, Vinton County High School, and New Lexington High School joined with Hocking College students to work through the viability of business concepts that included two school stores, a Chinese restaurant and food truck, web-based game, outdoor adventure store, and winery. Each school will continue to develop the canvas with progress being shared through Hocking College.
