Top 100 Business Trends in February

From Digital Menu Boards to Regional Scooter Pilot Programs

— February 23, 2020 — Business
The February 2020 business category exemplifies what new ventures brands are undertaking and how they are disrupting the market.

TENGA, for example, is a sex toy company that recently released a phone case that is designed to resemble one of the brand's most popular products. The novelty behind this ensured that the release captured the attention of many consumers. In the UK, on the other hand, British cutlery company Viners has released knives with a special design that answers to new legislation that passed in the country — it deemed knives to be "offensive weapons."

Finally, the February 2020 business round-up also singles out the flying taxi concept to be still growing strong with strategic collaborations like the one between Uber and Hyundai.
