We are located in the Coworking Space Nuremberg, Germany. At the Nuremberg Startup Weekend 2010 we used the Business Model Canvas by Alexander Osterwalder in the teams to brainstorm about the ideas. You can download the Business Model Canvas as a free poster under Creative Commons Share Alike 3.0 Unported License.
At the 2011 Startup Weekend Nuremberg we decided to make a simple web tool with easy to share links between team members who are brainstorming on a project, but not necessarily in the same room.
People from all over the world enjoyed Canvanizer and used it to collaborate, ideate and iterate with prestructured canvas templates.
In 2014 we started work on Canvanizer 2.0 which is the next level canvas tool you now have!
We update and improve it all the time (Changelog). We hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to use, share and give us feedback. Just send us an email to our support or tweet us @canvanizer.
