Top 50 New Venture Ideas in March

From Motorcycle Taxi Services to Personalized Makeup Apps

— March 25, 2016 — Business
From outdoor dog-parking stations to boat-sharing services, the March 2016 new ventures prove that there's plenty of room for those with entrepreneurial mindsets to innovate.

One of the key themes in many of these new ventures is that it's now possible to outsource everything and have just about anything ordered on-demand. This includes ordering massage therapists and yoga teachers to your home, as well as homecooked meals made by others, a tank of gas or even someone to do your chores. This is an indication of how P2P services and marketplaces are just beginning to give traditional businesses a run for their money.

Some of the biggest new ventures from monumental brands include McDonald's introducing a kale caesar superfood salad, Visa Developer and Amazon launching seven private label fashion brands.
