The Free Business Model Canvas Playground
Select your favorite canvas template or edit a template to create your own custom canvas.
Add items directly to canvas building blocks or the item stack. Quickly move items between blocks and the item stack.
Get started easily with any existing Fiddle by using the Fiddle's link or enter the Fiddle CODE under canvas settings.
Business Model Fiddle stores your canvas locally so it's fast. Only save when you want. You don't need an account to fiddle locally.
Quickly and easily color, star, validate, search and order items.
Unsure about an idea or where an item fits on your canvas? Pop it on the Stack. Drag items to order and move between Blocks and Stack. 1-Click copy and move in Block and Stack views.
Unclutter your canvas without loosing anything. Delete an item from the Stack and it goes into the Archive.
Copy your Fiddle to make new versions and explore different scenarios.
Sign In and save your Fiddle to get a short Fiddle CODE. No Account? Registration takes seconds.
Share your Fiddle's link or CODE with anyone. To share a Fiddle you must publish or distribute the Fiddle link.
We do not publish or share any of your profile information or Fiddles.
Anyone with a Fiddle's CODE can view and copy the Fiddle. They cannot edit the original Fiddle or see the Stack or Archive.
Business Model Fiddle comes ready to use with templates for popular canvases.
Create your own custom canvas by simply editing any of the included library templates.
Add your own help information (questions, examples, instructions...) for each of the canvas building blocks.
Use Snapshots to document key changes (pivots) with supporting Notes.
Click the toolbar snapshot camera to instantly capture the current state of your canvas.
Select the snapshot icon to review and step through your canvas states.
Assets are objects you can add to an Item. Currently images (photos) and drawings are available.
Upload or email photos to your canvas. We resize them ready to add to items.
Explain visually using the sketch tool. It's great fun and even works on small screen devices.
Use different colors to differentiate items. Add labels to colors such as the type of item (ideas, opportunities, benefits, problems...) or team member names.
Star favorite or important items.
Easily filter items by selecting a color or star from the toolbar.
Search across all items by entering keywords and the matching items are displayed instantly as you type.
Switch from Canvas to List display mode to show all canvas items in full.
List mode displays the canvas building blocks in single column using the block workflow order.
Just print directly from your web browser.
Canvas display mode is great for working, not so good for printing. We've sized the canvas display so it prints nicely on a single A4/legal sheet.
List display is perfect for printing everything on your canvas. It's also the default layout for small screens.

At its core, a social enterprise (SE) needs to have a robust and sustainable business model, and what differentiates it from a "profit-seeking" enterprise is a social mission that drives decision making.
