These small business innovations range from contract-creating platforms to niche financing services that are specially designed for entrepreneurs. Whether applied by a tech startup CEO or a seller of artisan crafts, these examples will appeal to a number of business owners who are looking to expand and build their brand.

When examining sponsorship, financing and payment innovations, standouts include Vouch, a crowdfunded loan service that offers low interest rates to those with a stable credit history. The platform grants monetary funds to business owners based on testimonials from customers, relative or friends that can vouch for their personality and financial history.

When looking at small business innovations in the branding realm, intuitive web design apps and logo generators top this list. Other standouts include interactive business card platforms that help rookie designers create professional-looking promotional materials at a fraction of the price.
