„The Business Modelling Starter Kit is of such value that it was stolen yesterday on an e-health event after I showed it (unfortunately this really happened)", Andre Winzer (Schaltzeit).   ...................................................................   "I particularly like the Business Modeling Starter kit because it introduces a time dimension in business modeling, going from the development of value proposition to the test of the model. In this way, it improves the Canvas by facilitating the transition from user experience research to business models design.
