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 | 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 | 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 | 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 | 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 | 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.
