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 | 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.
