The best Notion templates for startups
Building and running a startup is complex, especially if you’re a bootstrapper without any funding. You need to learn many skills in a concise amount of time. And more importantly, you need to keep an eye on everything while pushing your company. That’s why I’m a big Notion fan. Notion templates are the perfect tool for learning new skills, getting information, and tracking and managing data in real-time.
Notion provides a simple and intuitive way for you to organize your business, manage your ideas, and get things done. By offering the ability to work across computers and mobile devices at the same time, Notion has become an all-in-one solution that brings together our favorite services like Dropbox, Asana, Moqups, and much more into one place so you can stay productive and organized in your upcoming project.
I curated for you the best notion template for startups so that you can build and grow faster!
200+ Startup Resources
This Notion template is a directory of 200+ tools and resources for every stage of your startup.
Inside this database, you’ll find a ton of super useful tools for design, logo creation, launching, video making, but also management and inspiration, for instance. There are more than 20 categories. Each of them comes with a brief description and the key features. It’s super easy to pick the right one or sort the list to browse the tools.
→ This template is free. You can get it here: https://easlo.gumroad.com/l/ndpli
Business Plan Workspace
This Notion template will help you build an interactive and sharable Business Plan.
We all spent hours writing down a 60 pages business plan for our startup (that almost nobody reads). This time is over, hopefully. With this template, you’ll assess the feasibility of your startup, reduce the risk and build your roadmap for the months ahead. The good news is that it’s easily sharable to investors, stakeholders, and even early startup employees.
→ The price tag is $30, and you can buy it on Gumroad
This template is the Company management system built with Notion. With this dashboard, you can track, manage and plan all your startup life.
It comes with a main hub that contains everything to manage your project: tasks management, Project Roadmap, Meeting notes, knowledge bank. But you will also be able to put all your marketing plans and strategy and all your Financials data. This template can also be used as your startup wiki and to handle recruitment & Onboarding.
→ It’s a VERY complete Notion template, it comes at $79, and you can get on the Notionise store
Customer Journey Map Dashboard
A Notion template to create, control and track your customer journey. If you’re looking to improve your startup customer’s experience, or if you want to improve your sales funnel, you should have a look at this tool!
You’ll get more than 30 resources to improve your customer journey and some real examples of how you can use the template for your own startup. It will also help you to define your Buyer Persona. As it’s a Notion template and not a regular course, you can include the results of your surveys, analytics, and A/B testing, so you’ll store all your information in one place!

Raising funds for your startup is always super time-consuming. Dan created this Notion template to help you optimize this time, so you can focus more on growing your startup.
With this template, you’ll get everything you need to prepare your fundraising and manage your contact with the investors, your due diligence, and build your pitch deck.
Dan is a successful startup founder. He raised funding many times, so he knows what he’s talking about! If you want to raise some money from investors and have never done it before, I highly recommend checking it out:

SEO is one of the most powerful ways to generate traffic for your startup. But it’s hard to learn and also hard to track and plan on a daily basis.
This Notion template will help you with that! It will help you be more productive while writing content and doing the research before the content creation. One of my favorite features of SEO Compass is the content creation tool. Like Yoast, it will check in real-time a lot of factors that will improve your SEO ranking (Number of words, keywords density, keyword in the title, title length, meta description…)
And, it will send you a super simple score to evaluate your post performance and some suggestions to improve it.
If you want to create some evergreen content for your startup, this Notion template is for you!
