Top 60 Start-Up Trends in June

From On-Demand Messenger Apps to VR Soccer Broadcasts

— July 3, 2016 — Business
Offshoot plant-based cafes, marketing chatbots and app-only supermarkets are just a few of the June 2016 start-up ideas that are now in the works.

In order to encourage a sense of community among start-up entrepreneurs, the Construkt Media Startup Hostel was launched as a unique type of accommodation specifically for co-living and collaborations.

Some of the most intriguing new ventures from established companies include the launch of LINE MAN from Asian messaging service LINE, Levi's launching jeans made from recycled t-shirts and Spotify branching into the creation of its own original video series. In collaboration with Chef'd the New York Times also launched an unexpected offering of recipe kits to appeal to a segment of its readership that loves to cook at home.
