Top 45 Start-Up Trends in July

From Experiential Event Services to AI Government Robots

— July 24, 2016 — Autos
The top July 2016 start-up ideas range from low-cost farm-to-table restaurants to apps that take bookings for hotel rooms by the minute, appealing to a market that's full of cost-conscious consumers. These same consumers are also active participants in the sharing economy, which is creating room for services that allow homeowners to buy or rent out surplus garage spaces.

One of the most interesting new ventures comes from happy3D, which now has an online database from which consumers can download templates to replicate appliance parts with 3D printing technology.

A range of new start-ups are being introduced to empower consumers by granting them more choice and control in everything from transportation to life at home.
