The Business Model Gallery is a growing database of curated business models canvases gathered from a diverse set of companies operating in different sectors.

For each company you can analyze its updated "business canvas" in which you can see at a glance the key value propositions, its partners, revenue streams and all of the other key business building blocks.

Business models can be easily searched, filtered and compared across specific building blocks you are interested in. 

Coming up are also a PDF and PowerPoint export option as well as a dedicated iPad app.

A free trial is available and pro plans start at $9/month and go up all the way to $29/mo according to the number of features you want to use.

My comment: The Business Model Gallery offers a truly excellent gallery of valuable business models which can be extremely useful for anyone studying, researching or working on creating a successful new company.

Furthermore this is a great living example of how, curated collections of best of breed examples, are going to have a go as very useful business services in the coming months and years.

Free for the first three months:

La parte más difícil de concebir un proyecto emprendedor no es encontrar financiación para su lanzamiento: primero hay que tener un modelo de negocio efectivo. Esta Web es una muy completa base de datos para entender el business model de las empresas más exitosas

I've been using business model tool for years now. This gallery is truly amazing and I believe will be very useful for business architects and managers as they define their own corporate strategy because they will be able to easily compare with what others are doing.
