Top 50 Start-Up Innovations in July

From Honestly Priced Jewelry to Pop-Up Sitcom Diners

— July 29, 2017 — Business
The top July 2017 start-up ideas explore innovation across the sharing economy and the delivery of goods.

The booming share economy has created room for everything from campsite rental services and on-demand homesharing insurance plans to services that allow travelers to temporarily store their suitcases in retail settings, offering benefits for all parties involved.

Although many consumers are making the most of the benefits of shared ownership, those who make regular purchases are now being treated to grocery store vending machines, employee delivery services and try-before-you-buy e-commerce services for clothing and accessories.

Well-established brands are adopting the mindset of start-up companies by launching new ventures involving everything from standalone restaurant concepts to stored-value payment cards.
