Minimum Viable Product (MVP) Canvas

Minimum Viable Product (MVP) Canvas


Create lean products and services that work.

Discover your minimum viable product and keep product development and iteration cycle lean and agile. This canvas is great for concept development in a wide range of fields. Create product and software concepts, or define services your customers want.


Use the Minimum Viable Product Canvas to mindmap features, needs, requirements and concepts. Create cards, or place sticky notes in the corresponding fields and discover your minimum viable product.

  • What is the bare minimum that would probably make a poor product or service?
  • What would make an advanced and viable product that's difficult or time consuming to make?
  • Define your product or service that is both easy to create and attractive to customers.
  • What isn't? Place ideas outside your MVP, use this to come up with new ideas.

How to use this canvas?

Canvas Generation is an open library for canvas creators, enthusiasts and developers. We are not a productivity tool where you can use this tool. It is our mission to make the canvas library accessible to anybody for integration in their apps. Don't reinvent the wheel. Just use our free and open Canvas API. Our way of giving back :).
