We want to challenge you to fill out a business idea in a Lean Canvas. It's to see to what extent you're able to come up with a consistent business idea (at least in theory). It's ok if your business idea is still very early stage and chances are relatively high that you will not use this idea during the minor at all. However, feel free to already start exploring whether this idea is worth pursuing.
