The Innovator’s Canvas
A One-Page Business Plan And The Milestone’s
Every Startup Must Achieve To Become A Viable
Business
1
THE INNOVATOR’S CANVAS IS AN END-TO-END PROCESS
FOR VALIDATING INNOVATION IDEAS
• Problem: Most New Ideas That Fail Do So Because of
Market-Related Risk
– Lack of customer interest
– Channel conflicts of interest
– Etc.
– The issue is rarely about technical feasibility
• Solution: What If You Could Validate Each Idea Piece By
Piece In An Inexpensive Way?
– That’s the goal of the Innovator’s Canvas

PAINS The pain caused by having to struggle with existing solutions when getting the job done. GAINS Those desired customer needs that go above and beyond the core utility of getting the job done. PROBLEM / SOLUTION FIT You have found 15-20 people within a segment (b2c; 6-8 in b2b) who rate your value proposition as a 9 or 10 and state they would buy it right now if it was available SEGMENTSOLUTION GAIN CREATORS Value created by your product/service above and beyond merely solving the problem. PAIN KILLERS The main attribute of your product/service that solves a customer’s pre-existing pain. PRODUCT/ SERVICE These are the products and/or services you intend to sell.

  • 14. THE INNOVATOR’S CANVAS EXPLAINED 14 Key Resources Defines the “must have” resources for this business model to succeed These can include key people, processes, equipment, capital, etc. Does not include “should have” or “nice to have” resources E.g. Amazon’s key assets Distribution centers E-commerce website Efficient fulfillment systems (business processes) Key Metrics Key metrics are the set of numbers that when viewed together will quickly determine the success or failure of this business model These numbers must tie to the other areas of the canvas in that they help clarify the value proposition’s success, delivery of the brand promise, success of the channel, etc. E.g. Amazon’s key metrics could be YOY Sales Revenue Growth Rate Average Order Value Customer Satisfaction Ratings Brand Promise – The Why A clearly articulated and compelling emotional purpose for why this business/product/service exists. E.g. Amazon’s is “To be earth's most customer centric company; to build a place where people can come to find and discover anything they might want to buy online.” Customer Relationships Customer relationships describe what your relationship with customers looks like after the initial value proposition is delivered Often this describes how you intend to support customers and/or continue to build your brand and awareness to foster loyalty and trust. E.g. Amazon’s customer relationships 24/7 Customer Support Customer Segment These are the people who have a problem that you understand better than they do that you can potentially solve with your value proposition These are specific profiles of people who all share the same job to be done and who experience pain and want gains related to that job. E.g. Amazon’s customer segment (one of them) College students Value Proposition Value Proposition is the most important part of your business that describes what your offer is and what it will do for your target customers Key Partners Lists the partnerships that are essential to making the business plan work These can include key suppliers, financing partners, contractors, sales & marketing providers, etc. E.g. Amazon’s key partners Authors Independent re-sellers Unfair Advantage Unfair advantage is the one or two elements that make you uniquely suited to build this business better than anyone else could These can include patents/trademarks, network relationships, deep domain/functional expertise, unique experience, etc. E.g. Amazon’s unfair advantage Exceptional customer service Fulfillment efficiency Products&Services Thesearetheproductsand/orservicesyou intendtosell. E.g.Amazon’svalueproposition Products&Services:Amazon.comwebsite andfreeshippingwithPrime Gain Creators Gain Creators: Value created by your product/service above and beyond merely solving the problem. E.g. Find and discover anything you might want to buy online Channels Channels describe the modes you will use to deliver your value proposition to customers Several channels may exist for one value proposition These can include sales channels, installation channels, distribution networks, etc. E.g. Amazon’s channels Sales: Amazon.com Fulfillment: UPS / FedEx / USPS Gains Gains: Those desired customer needs that go above and beyond the core utility of getting the job done. E.g.
