Detailed guides on using the business model canvass for social enterprises

When I first discovered the Business Model Canvass and tried to apply it to social enterprises I believed, like many others, that social enterprises and not-for-profit organisations needed their own ‘special’ canvass. As I worked with the BMC in and around the social enterprise sector I came to realise that this was not the case – however, I also realised that there were some ‘special’ things about social enterprises that could easily be reflected in the BMC using a few simple adaptations. As I shared my learnings with others in the sector there were numbers of requests for me to provide some written materials. So, this is my attempt at documenting my learnings.
