Top 25 New Venture Innovations in April

From Artist-Focused AI to Holistic Recovery Studios

— April 29, 2018 — Unique
Sensory-friendly movie screenings, female-only ridesharing services and AI rewards programs are some of the innovations to emerge as April 2018 new ventures, which come from start-ups and established businesses alike.

While workout studios and fast food drive-thrus can already be found across the world, several businesses are setting themselves apart with divergent services that focus on niche offerings. Examples of this include New York City's ReCOVER studio, which offers activities and sessions to support the mind and body post-workout, as well as the pizza-focused California Quick Slice drive-thru that is set to be open this summer.

A number of new businesses are launching with a focus on Millennials, including Office Depot's BizBox, which provides young entrepreneurs with tools to accelerate their growth, as well as Sillages Paris, a perfume brand that is sparking new interest in the category through transparency, curation and customization.
