The Lean Canvas is a actionable template developed by Ash Maurya, based on the hugely popular Business Model Canvas. It's designed specifically for startups, with some of the sections swapped out to reflect the risk and uncertainty inherent in building a startup.

The Lean Canvas template, now available in Milanote

We put together this Lean Canvas template in Milanote to make it a quicker and more collaborative process, that can be completed both by teams operating in the same room or remotely. To get more from this template, you may choose to drag out boards into each box so that you can build up your ideas unrestricted.

Once you've completed the canvas, you can export the board as a PDF.
