'Columbus Framework' Canvas


The 'Columbus Framework' is primarily developed for startups and companies in their early phase of creation and with a Social and/or Environmental Impact at their core. It is specifically created to address the main questions regarding venture building by entrepreneurs and founders. It provides them with a overall framework to guide their early business decisions.

The framework can also be used for established businesses willing to transform themselves and putting Impact at their core, while reviewing their business model and operational model.
