What's the best online tool to generate a business model canvas

I've come across some not so modern tools like canvanizer (imho), but found nothing really modern. Closest thing which didn't turn out so convenient was google draw templates. Any advice? Best thing right now would be pen and paper :S

      Such a huuuuuuuge fan! I use RealtimeBoard for so many things - both in and out of work. From client projects to internal business planning to operation processes to personal planning, I can't stop raving about how much I love RTB to everyone I know. I'm also super impressed by the constant product iterations and feature updates that are constantly being released. Bravo, awesome work guys, I'm absolutely gushing but it's well deserved.

      For me, Realtime Board has beautifully united:

      + loose sticky notes

      + 3M's sticky notes scanning app

      + project management tools (Asana, Trello)

      + diagram tools (draw.io, Visio)

      + clipboard tools (Evernote, Google Keep)

      Works wonderfully on a touch-screen Chromebook.

    A must have for every designer.

    Pen & paper is more flexible and powerful for activities where you want to be focused less on the method of input, and more on the creative pursuit of documenting and designing a business model.

    Similar conceptually and relatively affordable.

    Yep big fan of lean stack, a variation on the business model canvas that has slightly more of a customer focus. Number of other valuable tools on leanstack, including traction roadmap to figure out what problem/solution fit, product/market fit and scale look like and a handy sprint board. Having said all that I usually start with a bunch of post-its and a chalk board, then transfer :)

    I see it did not too many upvotes. But the last time I used it (some years ago), it was good (and free. The other options were expensive).

    Strategyser is the best way to work on BMC as a team or individual. Pros: - Lets you Attach Value Proposition Canvas to each customer segment. - You can also create tests and validate your assumptions with this tool. - Has simple Market / Revenue projections. - this is the "Official" App from Alex Osterwalder - Single fee per team lets you iterate quickly. - Has a lot of supporting documents and videos on the methodology and tools.

    I'm biased, but the way GLIDR connects your canvas to your assumptions and allows you to then prioritize which experiments to run is pretty robust and dynamic. It also saves each week's canvas, so you can track how it has evolved over time. Check out this help article for more info: https://help.glidr.io/assumption...
