Teaching materials Database NBM

As of September 1, 2015, the project Database New Business Models (NBMS) began in the WEconomy. On this page, you will find all of the teaching materials associated with this project. The aim of this project is to build a comprehensive database of NBMS in the upcoming years in collaboration with students and teachers, a number of universities, and universities of applied sciences in Europe and beyond. In terms of content, this is being accomplished by using the Cloverleaf Business Model Canvas (KBMC) as elaborated in the publication “New Business Models”, Jonker (2014), and is available as an e-book. To order click here.
The project offers students (through assignments from their teachers) the possibility to carry out projects in the context of their studies that focus on sustainability and applied research. The resulting database is publicly available. Thereby, a contribution to society is made by connecting people, creating projects, and sharing insightful experiences with each other.
A selection of entries from NBMS can be worked out by students on the basis of an interview protocol presented as cases. When enough cases are available, we might consider publishing a case every week. This may possibly all contribute to a transition towards a sustainable economy.



Currently, there are several NBM cases based on research in the Netherlands

More cases will be added to this list during the upcoming year

For the project Database NBM, two groups of videos are available:

In addition, a preliminary selection was made of 40+ videos on sustainability and related issues (in both English and Dutch) which delve more deeply into the themes of the WEconomy and NBMS. These are also available on our own video channel on Youtube. View here.
Suggestions for additional related videos are always welcome.
