Top 75 New Ventures Trends in October

From AI Customer Care Services to 24-Hour Beauty Shops

— October 26, 2019 — Business
The October 2019 new venture trends in business test out cutting-edge concepts, implement innovative technologies or swap existing modes of operations for more efficiency-focused or eco-friendly ones.

A fresh area of exploration for Revlon is the 24-hour Beauty Salon, which the brand launched in London's Fitzrovia. The destination boasted make-overs from professional artists, as well as free treatments. The initative boldly disrupts the traditional hours of operations of establishments of this kind and tests the water for the necessity of them.

LG, on the other hand, is tapping into artificial intelligence to optimize its customer care service for proactive and tailored support. The ThinQ AI technology was debuted at IFA Berlin.

Finally, S-Market embraces the concept of the Happy Hour by severely discounting soon-to-expire food at 9 PM every night.
