Lubar Entrepreneurship Center Business Model Canvas Mixer is proud to be part of Milwaukee Startup Week. We invite students to an innovative brainstorm session with Milwaukee students, faculty, staff as well as community business leaders.

Modeling Entrepreneurship

The UWM Lubar Entrepreneurship Center Business Model Canvas Mixer is an exciting virtual event that brings students together with local community entrepreneurs and mentors to collaborate, display, and build canvases in one virtual co-working space. Any Milwaukee student is invited to participate. Students can expect to meet community mentors and get individualized attention on their idea. This event is proudly part of the Milwaukee Startup week. Mentors can expect to be in a small breakout room with students and be provided guiding questions to stoke the student’s thinking.

Lean Launchpad Methodology

Using “Lean Launchpad” methodology, students and local entrepreneurs are challenged to interact with others to discover the framework of their business as well as form teams. The Business Model Canvas is a tool that helps entrepreneurs better understand their business by visualizing how your company serves its customers, what value propositions are offered through what channels, and how your company makes money.
