Top 30 Start-Up Ideas in November

From Sensory Consumer Labs to In-Airport Yoga Studios

— November 26, 2017 — Unique
The top November 2017 start-up ideas show the many ways in which previously successful business models must now be tweaked for a new generation of consumers. These forward-thinking new business ventures include everything from dairy-free "milkman" services to ticket sales software backed by blockchain technology. Even the online shopping experience is being updated to provide a more personalized experience with AI.

Over the past few years, crowdfunding has played an immense part in making it possible for the average person with a big idea to see it come to fruition via an online campaign. Now, the leading crowdfunding platforms are introducing new features to empower those who have found success and inspire new creators. Kickstarter launched Commissions as a means of encouraging greater collaboration between creators and backers, while Indiegogo created Marketplace as a convenient place for users to shop for inventive products and support meaningful causes.
