In our pursuit of helping more companies in these trying times, Continuum Academy, powered by Mansmith and Fielders, presents the BUSINESS MODEL WEEK. Get access for FREE to the 1st Business Model Conference featuring 10 C-Suite executives from 10 Filipino companies. 

Many companies had big realizations during the pandemic, many of them uncomfortable ones, and are now racing against time. Despite having good products, some were unable to operate to their full potential and capacity. After all, good products need to be supported by good business models, and that requires an understanding on how to map your organization’s system of interdependent choices. 

The solution: Companies must avoid following the law of foolish fellowship by starting an industry’s firsts and stop hyper-focusing on existing practices. Companies must also identify their value chain and pinpoint exactly how they are going to create value, deliver it, and capture it better than their competition.

In the 1st Business Model Conference, 10 C-Suite executives give their point of view on business design: tips and insights as they explain the elements of their business models and what makes them tick.
