From Counter Culture Hair Salons to Educational Jewelry Ventures

 - Jul 30, 2016
These July 2016 business trends range from counter culture hair salons to educational jewelry ventures like Tiffany & Co's recent 'Keys for a Cause' initiative. The initiative is a partnership between the luxe jewelry brand and Jeddah-based Dar Al-Hekma University and aims to empower Saudi Arabian women by offering them free access to education.

When examining the month's social media-themed ventures, standouts include professional geofilter design platforms and smile assessment apps that help today's tech-savvy generation customize their online content more freely than ever before.

Experiential event services and kid meal deliveries round off this list and make decor, event planning and pre-made, nutritious meals more conveniently available for engaged couples and busy parents with a lack of free time.
