From Live Local Newsfeeds to Effortless Branding Apps

Many of the top November 2014 new ventures put emphasis on the idea of community. This can be seen in several unique crowdfunding platforms, such as Crowdlaunch.it, which is geared towards projects that are very close to completion and just need that extra push to make a new idea happen, or Amazon's New Kindle Scout publishing program, which asks the public to vote on the books that will be printed or not.

Some other inspiring projects that put responsibility back into the hands of humans include Nimbl, a mobile app that's like an ATM service where cash is delivered on-demand by people, or Toronto's Breakfast of Champions networking event, which reiterates the value of giving youth a chance to chat face-to-face with other professionals, rather than encouraging socialization on the Internet, despite how easy it may be.
