The term business model has been used in practice for few years, but companies create, define
and innovate their models subconsciously from the start of business. Our paper is aimed to clear
the theory about business model, hence definition and all the components that form each business.
In the second part, we create an analytical tool and analyze the real business models in Slovakia
and define the characteristics of each part of business model, i.e., customers, distribution,
value, resources, activities, cost and revenue. In the last part of our paper, we discuss the most
used characteristics, extremes, discrepancies and the most important facts which were detected
in our research.
