The Facilitator:

John Borden is a local startup founder and web / mobile developer who really hates talking about himself in the 3rd position, so I’m going to shift gears and just talk about myself like a normal person.

I became interested in the business model canvas around 7 years ago, largely due to it’s visual approach to designing business ideas, rather than trying to plan them out. It wasn’t until much later though that I realized just how truly effective the business model canvas could be, and more importantly, how easy it is to use it in a way that simply creates the illusion of progress. This led me to create Business Toybox, a tool for business model canvases that tries to make the process effective, intuitive, and fun. It’s basically a game with real-world stakes.
