Back in the summer of 2010, in search of a catchy name for a blog series about business models, ‘Business Model Breakdown’ (BMB) came to life. After nearly three years, it is our most visited set of posts and the only series being actively rolled out on the blog. In that light, we look back to the beginning of BMB and break down the best of the bunch.
