Platform Idea Canvas


Quickly draw your idea of a platform business model

The Ideation Canvas helps you to scribble a platform business idea on a one-pager. By filling all gaps you make sure, that you’ve taken all essential elements of an business model into account. You are able to quickly create an idea portfolio by running several iterations.


  1. Fill in the gaps, starting with the “what” (value proposition).
  2. Define all players (peers) on your platform.
  3. Describe how you want to make money (revenue model) and the corresponding value stream.
  4. Give your idea a catchy name.
  5. Pitch your idea and clarify the understanding.

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 :).
