Top 55 New Ventures Trends in October

From Scent-Enabled VR Therapy to Video Gamer Talent Agencies

— October 16, 2021 — Autos
The top October 2021 new ventures see companies refreshing familiar offerings, as seen with department stores introducing their own subscription services, the launch of news-centered streaming services and sustainable grocery stores that offer waste-reducing refill services.

Across a wide range of industries, companies are getting into the creation of their very first NFTs. While some take the form of magazine covers or collectible digital art pieces, others are paired with physical assets that offer even more value in the real world. Iconic video game company Atari, for example, will soon be introducing The Arcade OG Series and Maxim is launching its own blockchain-based marketplace platform. Designed to put power back into the hands of creators and provide collectors with authentic ownership, NFTs speak to a new generation of collectors.
