The trends
In this current decade, entrepreneurs are facing two significant paradigm shifts.

However, managing digital assets, ensuring compliance, integrating them into a unified platform, and aligning key business activities with customer relationships in the social context have become significant hurdles for startups and small to medium-sized enterprises.
The Methodology for Transforming Business Models
A business model serves as an essential infrastructure for business operations.

Every business model comprises four essential components: value creation, delivery, capture, and distribution.
