New Business Ideas? How Cool Are These 5 New Killer Small Business Ideas?


Visitors: 333

While doing research for my various book projects, I came across these brilliant new small business ideas that I thought you would get a kick out of:

1. Fair Trade Vending Machines Fair Trade products are gaining momentum in normal grocery retail channels through coffee (close to 50% of coffee sales in Tesco in the UK apparently) and sugar so the next logical step is to offer Fair Trade products through vending machines - especially in socially conscious environments at first, such as colleges and universities.

This actually gives people the physical means to do nifty stuff for our world rather than them just having the vague, unfulfilled desire to help.


2. Self-Powering ‘Eco-Nightclub' Tapping into the need for energy consciousness in all aspects of our lives, one London disco - Surya - harnesses piezoelectricity (whatever that is) by generating 60% of its energy needs from its dance floor when danced on. The green funkster responsible is 35-year-old property developer Andrew Charalambous who believes that his new baby is the world's first ecological nightclub. The club's slogan? “All you have to do is dance to save the world".

Hard to argue with that.

3. Optical Illusion ‘Truckvertising' While advertising on large trucks like ‘mobile billboards’ has been around for ages, creating clever, striking and engaging optical illusions with those advertising spaces has not.

What a brilliant way to promote your new small business in your area or as a small business in itself. The trucks themselves also serve as ads for such a brilliant small business.

4. Wearable Airbag For Motorcyclists The “D-Air System" is a part of a specialized motorcycle jacket that deploys in 40 milliseconds when it senses that the rider is falling. Such a technology seems likely to become mandatory for all motorcyclists to wear given the legal necessity of cars to have airbags since 1989 in the US. This looks like a classic case of a neat tech device potentially saving many lives.

Good job.

5. ‘Miss Army’ Knife - The Female ‘Swiss Army’ Knife - Get It? (a. k. a. Miss A Kit) Designed for women, the Miss Army Knife, like its iconic male counterpart, features a range of tools in one utility device except for female use. Tools on the Miss Army Knife include tweezers, nail file, safety pin and corkscrew.

Brilliant name and product.
