From Shared Electric Cars to Palm-Scanning ATMs

By: Laura McQuarrie - Oct 22, 2016
The top October 2016 start-up ideas explore a variety of entirely new ways to do familiar things such as enjoy pizza, take a medical test or withdraw money from an ATM. These somewhat commonplace practices are being entirely transformed for a new generation with robotic pizza chefs and TV ordering systems, at-home medical kits and palm-scanning ATMs.

When it comes to the physical spaces themselves that often inspire the creation of many new entrepreneurial ideas, co-working spaces are also being transformed into more flexible working environments. Some of the newest ones are specifically designed with mindfulness, mediation or even night owls in mind.

Some of the other impressive new ventures being launched by established brands and public figures include 'The Ballet' by Drake, Starbucks' first-ever branded web series 'Upstanders' and 'Sweets by CHLOE' from Chloe Coscarelli.
