Ideas are a core component of your project. Whether you're starting from scratch with a new Business Idea or working on a new Product Idea, your canvas will begin to fill with Ideas, either before you get out and get Evidence to validate or invalidate your Idea, or from Evidence you've already gathered from tests or customer interviews.
