We are aware that there are neither shortcuts nor silver bullets for starting an innovative business. A lot of hard, hands-on work is required, and inevitable disappointments must be overcome to bring any new idea on the market. Our work at ValueMapp is to support innovators along this process, helping as best as we can with practical methods and tools.

ValueMapp is based on state-of-the-art approaches, well known methodologies and our practical experience in industry and research projects. It is a value-driven process, relying on the customer’s needs analysis to formulate product ideas and strategies. Our Essential Business Model tool lets users focus on what matters more for an innovative product: how the product can create a positive value exchange with customers and how it can sustain its own growth on the market.

The ValueMapp process relies on fast implementation of business ideas, to learn by direct experience with customers. In line with the “Lean Startup” principles the idea, the strategy and the implementation are progressively refined through validation and revision cycles.

Being ourselves a startup, our goal is to learn by working with the customers to constantly improve ValueMapp. Our tools and documentation are freely available to all, and we will update and extend them taking into account the user’s feedback.

You are welcome to use ValueMapp and we look forward to hear from you!
