INCluSilver Training material
On this page, you can find the training materiale made for SME’s
Through this webinar, SMEs understand the principles of business model design and gain significant and valuable insight, via practical advice as to how, when & why business model matters for their business. In order to bring to the participants added value and provide them with something they cannot easily find, it was decided to focus on Business Model for food businesses, instead of simply repeating all the 5Ps formulas etc. There are specific aspects that the companies need to consider and focus on before they start a project within the food/nutrition field and an effort was made to include those aspects in the content of the INCluSilver’s Business Model Webinar.
