5th SciFY Academy: Sharing #OpenKnowledge for Business Model Canvas!

Over 100 people came on Wednesday July 15, 2015 at the 5th SciFY Academy that took place at INNOVATHENS. This time we shared open knowledge about the use of Business Model Canvas for Non-for-Profit Organizations, with speaker Mr Dimitris Paksimadis, member of KEMEL, f. President & Director Manager of OgilvyOne Athens and f. General Director of ΒΒDΟ Advertising.


The event was opened by Ms Marisa Antonopoulou who presented to the participants the actions of the non for profit organization Action Finance Initiative - AFI.

Later, D. Paksimadis referred to the timeless shift of Marketing from the offered result/product, to the individual/client and how its development set in its center the human being. Moreover, he explained the replacement of 4Ps Marketing Mix with the new S.A.V.E. model explaining its advantages and presented the value of personalized services and Differential Marketing.

Subsequently, Mr Paksimadis set a Business Model and referred to Business Model Canvas as one holistic approach tool with customer centered approach. He analyzed the procedure of creating a BMC for a Non-for-Profit, the six stages that must be followed and the very successful campaign of Unicef based on BMC. 

Lastly, BMC was implemented on the spot for a young NGO with the participation of the attendants. Then, as always happens, followed an open discussion where questions were answered and where Mr Paksimadis shared “tips & tricks” from his experience using BMC.

We want to thank the speakers, KEMEL and INNOVATHENS that contributed once more in our effort for the free dissemination of knowledge!
