HEROs produce virtuous cycles… the more they sell/produce, the better off our planet is.Metaphor, instead of circling the drain (negative spiral) we are circling up in a thermal (positive, uplifting spiral).
If you are in a similar situation, how do you get started on business model design?
The start up as an experiment to see if there are customers and a workable (and worthy) business model
Customers, consumers and users. Who pays, who benefits?
And testing and testing and testing…
