    While it isn't the same as Miro (and tbh no other tool comes as close to what Miro does so far) but it's a good "start" which is fully free. Collaboration via Google Drive/Workspace works fine, but again not a proper Miro replacement but the best we got so far.

    Interface that goes along the same lines as Miro. Also a whiteboard, that can be made as collaborative with teams or private, personal ones.
