Startup Ideas | Karma Score

Problem

(I found that while I had been capturing my startup ideas over the last few years, I wrote down this idea 3 times =) unintentionally.  I guess, I really like this idea =)

How do you encourage people to do good deeds in their community? How do you stimulate the philanthropy and volunteering? How do you make it look and feel cool?

Solution

A Klout-like scoring system to earn and show your karma score which is built based on a person’s contribution to the community by doing good deeds and bringing “good” to the world.

Startup Ideas | Maintenance Vendors Marketplace

Problem

As a strata manager, it is time-consuming to find contractors for a maintenance or repair job for the property. And how do you make sure you get the high-quality results with the best price? Also, lack of transparency for the owners makes this part of owning a property in multi-unit complex a “black box”. How did strata manager choose this or that vendor? Why was it so expensive? How much higher (or lower) this price is comparing to the average market price?

Solution

A marketplace-like platform with a bidding mechanism to connect trades contractors with strata managers. Ratings, profiles, a communication mechanism, transactions, built-in insurance, and reporting for property owners.

Startup Ideas | Reorder Office Supplies

Problem

As an office manager, it is hard to keep up with the supplies and accessories your team may need. Think milk, snacks, coffee beans, HDMI cables, USB-dongles, etc. Anything that the team needs on a regular basis. How do you keep track of all that’s needed? Often, the office manager has to go around and check what needs replenishment, or if there are any requests for extra accessories/equipment. Or a more usual scenario – when employees already need something right now, they ask the office manager to re-order something and then wait for another few days to get it in the office. This works on an ad-hoc basis, which makes it easy for many things to get missed.

Solution

A mobile app, potentially, with Slack (or slack-like) bot to make reordering of regular items 1-click easy. Employees launch the app (or slack) and click items they want to get re-ordered. During the day, the office manager receives notifications of incoming requests and approves/rejects them, then the app submits the order at a defined time of the day. For scaling and optimizing delivery can combine daily orders from several offices in the same building/area.

Startup Ideas | Helping Others Platform

Problem

As a person, who wants to build stronger long-term relationships with other people in their professional network one of the best ways to do this is by helping them with what they may need help with at the moment, without expecting anything in return. More of a “philanthropic” investment in your karma, when the quality of the relationships is more important than the number of your (meaningless) connections.

Solution

A platform (don’t want to say social network =) where people can share publicly or privately what their current needs are (e.g. find a new job, find a new client for their service, find a professional for a need, find a volunteer, etc.). As a part of this platform, you can see the current needs of your network on your “radar” and help them with that they may be needing help with. For example, connect a business owner who needs help with their social media campaign with another connection of yours who can help them with this campaign. As a result, they both help each other and get value out of this new connection. And you get good karma points =)

Startup Ideas | Mobile App Price Conversion

Problem

As a tourist, it is always a hassle to convert prices in your head or using a calculator from the local currency to the one you are used to operating with. Also, different countries exclude taxes from the displayed price, which adds even more calculations one has to make to understand how much something costs.

Solution

AR mobile app with text recognition and updating currency exchange rates allowing users to point the camera at the price tag and see the price in their desired currency, including all taxes and other extra charges.

Startup Ideas | Global Job Board

Problem

As a person looking for a job, overall it is a horrible and broken experience, and somebody has to fix it. This particular idea is about making it easy to find job applications. Specifically, for the tech jobs, the job board market is too fragmented. They are all separate from each other, and the user has to browse/search or set up notifications (which are broken and useless most of the time, too) one by one.

Solution

Job postings aggregator website, that pulls or scrapes the other job boards and allows users to browse/search and apply from one place. Could fix broken (irrelevant) notifications problem, as well.

Startup Ideas | Farmer’s E-market

Problem

As a person who wants to eat healthier produce and other foods, it is a very manual and time-consuming process to find local farmers markets and go there to buy something. Their “lifespan” is very short and it is often hard to combine these trips with the work schedule. Their locations are also very limited.

Solution

An e-commerce store allowing farmers to sell their products with delivery. Like a global marketplace, with crowd-buying option to optimize delivery costs.

Startup Ideas | Ads Conversion ROI Dashboard

Problem

As a business owner, it is difficult to see the ROI of all the ads across all channels, as well as other published content (Medium articles, youtube videos, etc.). Hard to compare the conversion funnels across all channels and determine what works and what doesn’t.

Solution

A dashboard allowing users to connect all social media and other channels and merge data together to stack each channel effectiveness against others depending on the defined KPIs (e.g. visits, leads, sales, signups, shares, reach, etc.)

Startup Ideas | Kids Activities Platform

Problem

As a parent, it is a challenge to find new classes and sports programs to get your child into. Finding available spots is an even bigger challenge. There are too many separate options.

Solution

A platform allowing parents to browse and search different kinds of sports and academic activities for their children based on the age, location, type, price, ratings, and availability, plus booking and transactions.

Startup Ideas | Shared Space Platform

Problem

As a freelancer, looking for an office space for an upcoming client meeting, it is hard to find which ones are available on a specific date/time, in a designated area, if they have the necessary equipment (e.g. TV, projector, printer, etc.), and how many people it can fit.

Also, if you expand the target audience to professionals who require a space for their service (e.g. chiropractors, massage therapists, etc.), they may have a similar need – “My main clinic is on renovation/lockdown/etc. Where can I work from for the next few weeks?”

Solution

A platform allowing people to browse and search different shared spaces with various filters, real-time availability, booking, and transactions.
