Business Model Canvas for Monte Novo

Following the concept of open-innovation we post our business-model instead of hiding it as a secret.

Please feel free to co-create and give us your feedback.

We think of Monte Novo as a self-sufficient project in terms of both energy and financing. There is no master plan to generate unbalanced growth and wealth!

Business Model Canvas for the Monte Novo project

Business Model Canvas for the Monte Novo project

For me Monte Novo is…

an innovative project about balancing.

commercial tourism business vs. a place for friends to meet
back to nature vs. standard of modern life
alternative life style vs. marketable business concept
naturism vs. clothing optional
self-sufficient energy supply vs. energy demand for modern technologies
Portuguese culture vs. global influences

For me the core concepts and key-words are:

  • glamping
  • solar energy and energy saving mindset
  • simple but high standard eco buildings
  • being naked in a nature spa environment
  • permaculture / aquaculture
  • holiday office / consulting
  • a project that pays-off for a modest family-life



we just started
