FOUNDERS AND CXOS: SMART GROWTH & INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENT

Emerging tech CXOs that are global-ready generally know their markets, value proposition and solution scope. By focusing on the important “proof points” the focus is entirely on strategic ‘wins’ to move the needle on valuation, market traction and exit possibilities.
 
The Global Venture Canvas can be used in groups or with individual startups, and with external domain experts. UC Berkeley MBA students, and in 2017 graduate students from other international business programs, have used the GV Canvas and bring fresh eyes to synergy between corporates, investors and international startups. This is designed with international lifecycle in mind, to help speed things up.
 
Like the Business Model Canvas originally proposed by Alexander Osterwalder and supported by evangelists like Steve Blank, the GV Canvas can be used in groups or individually. It is a meant to help bring insight to key proof points that allow for lean, smart and successful venturing in the last three years of an entrepreneur’s journey.
