Top 65 New Ventures Trends in December

From Sports-Branded Light Ales to Cake-Like Vegan Donuts

— December 8, 2019 — Business
The December 2019 new ventures trends showcase how companies are pushing the parameters of their business to surprise and delight audiences. This can be in the form of a new product activation or a collaboration.

The list calls attention to new endeavors in Bitcoin as many businesses are beginning to embrace cryptocurrency as a form of payment. While France tests out the Bitcoin concept in the brick-and-mortar space, the Japanese crypto trading giant Coincheck is enabling people to pay for gas in Tokyo with it.

Of course, the December 2019 new ventures spotlight some plant-based activations as well — from Roya Aghighi's photosynthetic fabrics to the ultra-popular vegan fast food joint, Globally Local, that opened recently in Toronto.
