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

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.

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

Farid Mheir's curator insight, September 6, 2013 10:00 AM

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.

good examples to live lean

Oliver Durrer's curator insight, October 22, 2014 2:22 PM

The notion of "MVP" or "Minimum Viable Product" is a key element of Eric Ries' book The Lean Startup. The idea is to test an MVP with early adopters to reach product-market fit as quickly as possible through real customer feedback and validation of underlying growth and value hypotheses. Avoiding to waste time and resources on developing a product that nobody wants. Still - very surprisingly to me - the number one reason for Startup failure, according to this source: http://sco.lt/8gFEh7

The Pros and Cons of Paid Content Models

The Pros and Cons of Paid Content Models | Building Innovation Capital | Scoop.it
Do Paywalls Change the Engagement Equation? - The Huffington Post

 

Jake Batsell seems to think so, saying that while advertising-driven models of digital journalism aim to maximize page views, when news organizations introduce online subscriptions "it reconfigures the benchmarks for success."

 

Which leads to the question: What are online readers willing to pay for digital content?

 

It's one of those complex issues troubling publishers, editors and reporters who have to worry about producing enticing content to compete with the plethora of digital fare, and, ensure the success of their revenue streams.
