Top 30 Start-Up Ideas in February

From Soup Delivery Services to Automated HR Tools

— February 25, 2017 — Unique
As the February 2017 start-up ideas demonstrate, with the arrival of a new year comes a slew of fresh new concepts from entrepreneurial minds across the globe.

The most intriguing concepts across multiple industries include the opening of a cafe that only sells cookie dough treats, wine that's packaged in slim bottles to conveniently fit through home letterboxes and meat-ordering services that let consumers purchase a cut of a cow in order to reduce overall waste.

Some notable new ventures from established companies include ChapStick introducing its first-ever lip scrub as a companion to its extensive line of lip balm products, and the launch of UberOne in Spain, an all-electric rideshare service that is powered by a fleet of Tesla vehicles.
