'NeedIn' is a unique app that encourages the creation of new businesses based on consumer suggestions. Most business apps tend to help with efficiency or connect businesses with clients, but NeedIn is a little different.

NeedIn eliminates preliminary planning stages by giving entrepreneurs requests for specific businesses from potential customers. Perfect for a burgeoning neigborhood, residents will be able to suggest a prospective business from pizza shops to salons, which can help entrepreneurs hone in on their business plan. NeedIn is also location-specific and makes it easy for business owners to identify areas that are in need of a particular product or service.

NeedIn could eventually function as an inexpensive, crowdsourced solution for future businesses. Rather than spending time and money on research, NeedIn provides instantaneous data and allows businesses even a deeper connection to their customers from the ground up.
