Welcome to Business Model Design Center (BMDC), the worlds first interdisciplinary research center focusing on business models.
All of our research revolves around the notion of seeing the world through the lens of business models. Some of our current research projects are:

  • Network-based business models
  • Matching for growth: Connecting private equity with potential growth companies
  • Internationalizing Danish SME’s and educating business consultants to drive internationalization
  • The business model of University/Industry collaboration
  • New Research Management

Read more about the different activities in BMDC by clicking the links below.


Our activities are primarily done in collaboration with real companies, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s), public organisations and start-ups. In our Business Model Lab we have developed a series of flexible and generic workshop modules and that span the business development exercise from creative thinking to optimizing performance. Our unique setup of facilitation, ICT, tools and physical location ensures that we can properly monitor and document development processes. So while you learn, we learn too!
