Top 30 New Ventures in August

From Sustainable Cup Solutions to Micro Fulfillment Centers

— September 4, 2018 — Business
The top August 2018 new ventures shows start-ups and established businesses alike introducing innovative ideas across a number of categories that promise to offer a greater level of convenience, entertainment and better care for the Earth.

Some forward-thinking companies are making a point to disrupt products, services and processes that have become familiar to consumers—even within the last couple of years—by introducing everything from rideshare service subscriptions and direct-to-consumer interior paint collections to small-scale fulfillment centers with robots that have the potential to reshape the future of retail.

In the war against plastic that sees consumers supporting apparel and accessories made from ocean plastic waste and campaigns to do away with single-use straws, big-name brands are teaming up to develop packaging solutions and initiatives for a brighter, more eco-friendly future.
