From Ethical Investing Tools to IoT Service Providers

 - May 29, 2016
The top May 2016 start-up ideas experiment across a wide range of industries, including concepts for dedicated co-working spaces inside retail environments, lighting systems powered by bacteria and bicycles that are produced entirely by robots.

One of the most prevalent themes in many of these new start-ups is that products and services are being introduced to carry out a hyper-specific purpose. For instance, HyreCar provides people without cars the chance to rent vehicles in order to become a ridesharing driver, while Optinno Mobitech launched an app to identify the chances a phone call will be dropped.

In order to promote the spread of new concepts that may turn into new ventures, there are services like UberPITCH and OpenInvest that change the traditional dynamic between an investor and someone with a bright idea.
