BIANYS sponsors gain exclusive, early access to innovators looking to create jobs and build businesses in the New York ecosystem.


Welcoming all entrepreneurs, innovators, or main street businesses, to create a business model canvas (a present day business plan) with the advice and guidance of the top business incubator professionals in New York.  By the end of the course the entrepreneur will be able to determine if their idea is ready to launch, will be given advice on the next steps, and determine if and which incubators within the BIANYS network are a good fit for them to continue receiving mentorship from.  If incubation is not a fit, we will help them determine the next best step within the economic development ecosystem.

The entire program is based on the Steve Blank lean startup methodology of flushing out your business concept.  Participants will watch online videos explaining each section of the Business Model Canvass (BMC) and then they will be asked to create a draft of that section of their own BMC.  They will present their draft in the live online classes and then receive group and !:! mentorship in response to their presentation in each class and also individualized mentorship in between the weekly classes.
