These Innovative Startups Will Inspire New Entrepreneurial Ideas

These innovative startups are proof that there is inspiration and opportunity everywhere. TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie is a perfect example of this. After breaking his leg at the age of 19, Mycoskie was inspired to start his first business -- a laundry pick-up service. The Prim laundry service in San Francisco was developed under a similar premise, taking an issue or frustration faced in daily life and turning it into a viable business.

Although inspiration can be found anywhere, actually beginning to execute and plan for the launch of a new business or product can be daunting. To help get a startup's products out to the masses, Rachel Shechtman created the 'Startup Store' in New York City, which aims to help display products for new businesses that could use a boost.
