Startup ecosystems can be fragmented, competitive, and hidden to newcomers, which is detrimental for community growth. The Startup Ecosystem Canvas seeks to provide entrepreneurs with a clear list of resources for every stage of their startup journey, and outline a basic framework for communities to map their ecosystem.

With applications for the Toronto Founder Institute coming to a close, we are excited to release the Toronto Startup Ecosystem Canvas, which is currently in Draft v1 below! It was developed by the Toronto Founder Institute, and local startup leaders Kamal Hassan and Sunil Sharma.

More input is needed, so please leave your comments on this collaborative Google document, and it will be considered for the next update.
