Startup Ideas | Volunteering for Employees

Problem

I couldn’t find an easy way to find volunteering opportunities with filtering of the needed help, locations, dates/times, etc. And as a good human, I believe people should help others in need and there must be a better way to find who needs help. As an employer, you want to promote ethical behaviour and ‘help others’ mindset. Finding the societies or non-profits who need help takes time and effort, and quite a burden for HR team when they are already swamped with their primary responsibilities.

Solution

A platform for companies to bridge the gap between non-profits and other organization who would benefit from volunteering help and their employees who want to contribute to their communities by volunteering. With karma points for the work the employees do, and gamification to stimulate the “give-back” actions.

Startup Ideas | Equipment Leasing Marketplace

Problem

For a business owner, when you are in need of leasing or renting a piece of equipment, you have to go a long mile to find one available from a reliable supplier, who is close to your location and offers the best conditions. And it’s all separate, takes even more time when you are looking for more than one type of equipment.

Solution

A marketplace connecting companies who own various equipment and lease it out to other businesses, with ratings, real-time communication, deals, offers, promos, inventory, and built-in transactions (potentially, with insurance coverage).

Startup Ideas | Personalized Disaster Supply Kits

Problem

With the abundance of stores selling disaster/survival kits, I was surprised to find out they are all quite generic and offer the same kind of products without considering the geographical specifics. So, if you want to optimize your kit to your geographical, family, or other special needs, you will have to find and buy the missing items yourself, which takes a lot of time and effort.

Solution

An e-commerce store which offers emergency supply kits based on your location (to consider geographical specifics of the area you live in, e.g. maps, terrain nuances, etc.), family structure (do you have children, seniors, pets, etc.? e.g. something to occupy your kids with), and other personal circumstances (e.g. mobility or other health constraints). Also, automatic restocking reminders when items in the kits expire, so customers don’t have to be checking this themselves.

Startup Ideas | Events-Analytics Platform

Problem

In any company, there are a lot of reasons influencing web analytics on incoming traffic to their website, both internal and external. Almost impossible to draw clear connection which internal actions or external events triggered changes in web analytics.

Solution

A web platform that connects web analytics and marketing campaigns, industry events, other websites’ referral, various markets’ changes and trends, and puts everything on one “map” to draw connections between all inputs and resulting web/app traffic changes. Add predictive analytics using machine learning.

Startup Ideas | Startup Grants

Problem

Very difficult for entrepreneurs to find all necessary information about possible grants (and other financial help from the government and other socially responsible organizations) they can qualify for. It’s a mess.

Solution

A super easy-to-use information website where a business/startup owner can find what grants they can get, from whom, what process is, and who can help them do it.

Startup Ideas | Substitute Teachers On-Demand

Problem

When a school teacher is out sick/vacation/etc., the school has to quickly find a substitute teacher and ask them to come in, which is done by going through an existing list of approved professionals and connecting with them over the phone to see if they are available and how fast they can get there, which seems like a very inefficient and unfair process.

Solution

A one-stop marketplace with a full list of substitute teachers with reviews/ratings, availability, chat, etc.

Startup Ideas | Mens’ Skincare E-commerce Store

Problem

Modern men are getting more open to the idea of taking care of their skin to age slower. When traveling for work I see more and more men of “executive” appearance stopping by skincare shops in the airports and buying some products to treat their skin/body. My assumption is that these people are usually very busy and don’t have a lot of time understanding what all the options are, what they need, and where they can go to buy stuff for their skin. And I think this is a large market that will be increasing even more.

Solution

An e-commerce store with a very easy (icon-driven) way to filter through the products based on age and what part of the body they are interested in. Potentially, add subscription to reduce friction even more. Just sign up, set your preferences and get favourite (or recommended by a skincare expert) products in your mail.

 

Startup Ideas | Goody Bags Subscription

Problem

Every year, parents have to buy goody bags or party favours for their kids’ birthday parties. In most cases, it will be some throw-away crappy kits from Walmart or dollar store, a waste of money and negative environmental impact. Better options are very time-consuming and/or expensive.

Solution

A subscription service where parents register their children and set their age and dates of birth. When the date comes the parents confirm the number of kits they need and the theme(s) and get the goody bags delivered to them.

Startup Ideas | Help Me Moving

Problem

When a person is moving to a new place and they need to find information on the all necessary services by searching various different sources, calling through multiple vendors to find who is available, what their reviews and prices are, etc.

Solution

A one-stop marketplace with a full list of relevant services, vendors, trucks, movers, packing materials, storage, etc. with reviews/ratings, availability, chat, bookings, transactions, etc.

Startup Ideas | Features Upvoting

Problem

Find a better way to gather thoughts and opinions about product development from stakeholders (and customers/prospects)

Solution

A tool for internal private and/or external upvoting on product and features ideas and roadmaps (product hunt for ideas within business)

Startup Ideas | Get Paid to Travel

Problem

Give opportunity to people who love travelling to go places and (somehow) get paid for travelling.

Solution

A platform that connects people who want to travel and companies/brands who want to sponsor them for producing content, with travellers’ “portfolios”, profile pages, and built-in transactions.
