The Value Canvas helps you to define the core value proposition and business model of your platform. You understand the core motivation of every stakeholder to join the platform. And you design the inbound and outbound transactions incl. revenue streams.

  1. Define the core element & mission of your platform.
  2. Define the key stakeholders
  3. Define the value propositions
  4. Define the inbound / outbound transactions

Concentrate on the value proposition for each stakeholder segment. It’s important that you get this right, because your platform needs to serve multiple segments at the same time.
