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 | 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 | 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.

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 | 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 | 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 | 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.
