Using a Business Model Canvas has become one of the premium alternatives to dragging one out on paper. These boards make creating and interpreting business plans or go-to-market strategies a collaborative endeavor and something anyone can create.

We define business model canvases on our comprehensive guide as “A business model canvas is an organizational tool that helps visualize the development of a potential business model. It describes the components required to successfully take a business to market. The end goal of using a business model canvas is to gain a better understanding of a target customer base, how to drive a profit, and how to deliver a unique value proposition. These are some of the key components to using a business model canvas and must be defined in order to achieve a successful go-to-market strategy.”

Our business model canvas emulates a traditional version, and there are many different kinds of business model canvases that are commonly used through online whiteboards. Use our business model canvas in order to best create a solid business plan or edit it to fit your specific goals.
