Business models are a useful tool for technology-cased companies, especially when preparing the business plan. They consist of dynamic analysis tools aimed at value designing and helping to clearly define what is intended to be offered to the market, how it will be developed, to whom and how to earn an income.

Agile tools such as the canvas model are becoming more commonly used, allowing in a faster way to validate the key elements of the business regarding, such as the problem, the market, the proposed solution, the distribution channels, costs and income. To collect information and monitor the follow-up, technology intelligence is a strategic tool for entrepreneurs, helping to obtain data, analyse information and make agile decisions based on evidence.

In #MoocVT there is more information on how to plan an agile and practical process of technology monitoring through the Canvas Model.
