From Touchless Payment Programs to Custom Retail Spaces

 - Nov 28, 2015
As seen in the November 2015 business ideas, opportunities for entrepreneurial individuals are becoming more available than ever thanks to innovations like networking platforms for freelancers, services for granting small business loans and more.

Since LinkedIn is known by many as the go-to network for professionals online, it launched the 'Picture Opportunity Tour' via a truck to give people the chance to get a proper headshot photo, as well a profile feedback on the spot.

Other inventive ideas in business to look forward to in the near future include retail concepts that will be staffed entirely by robots, widespread touchless payment systems and heat-sensitive retail mirrors that show off the unique properties of a garment. On the consumer side, these innovations are not only streamlined and secure, but also more entertaining.
