🛠️ OPEN BUSINESS IDEAS 🛠️

Below a list of business/product ideas I had or read about.

They are worthless if they remain ideas and if you don't overcome the challenges in building them, so feel free to copy / tweak / implement them!
👇

Better: use one and make a MVP during the #24hrstartup challenge!
😻 Product Hunt Time
A clock that displays the time it is @ProductHunt
Also displays what you should do and where you should post, at each specific time during your launch
🚧 IndieCrunch - VC free tech news
Techcrunch but only for bootstrapped companies
🎧 Kickstarter for audiobooks
A lot of awesome books are not available as audio.
Crowdfund the money to buy the audio rights + a voice actor
💻 Flashcards to learn bash commands
Start as a paid Anki deck, or make your own app
💬 A telegram chatbot to plan 90 days sprints
Based on the method by @taylorpearson https://t.co/a2fQodzeAs
Daily, weekly, quarterly questions to help you reevaluate what to do next
📧 A phone number that only receives sms, and sends it to your email.

📖 TLDR this
A 5 lined summary of any article
Monetize with subscription, with the top shared articles
📸 Airbnb for photographs
Probably already exists!
But you could start with a simple Typeform to book. Then on the backend just a spreadsheet of the top 50 photographers in your city, make and confirm all bookings manually by phone for starters.
Then automate your bottlenecks
💰 Fiverr, but pay only with crypto
💱 No fiat here
A list of services where you pay in crypto and crypto only.
Add all competitors to Airbnb, Uber and other big tech companies

This exists for Wordpress as a plugin, make is for any CMS or website
