A Business Idea A Day

Tomorrow, September 9, we’ll start an experiment: each day, we’ll post a new business idea for startup founders. Yes, you read correctly: 1 new startup idea per day.


The reason for us to openly publish startup ideas is to make you think about them, send us feedback and discuss them – and maybe we motivate you to take one of those ideas, refine it and create a business out of it. Wouldn’t that be great?

Even if you aren’t a prospective founder, please regard this experiment as a hands-on move against a widespread german disease best decribed as “I-don’t-want-to-tell-you-my-idea-right-now-because-It-should-not-be-stolen-or-copied!”

We’ll start by using only 140 characters per business idea. Our goal is to communicate the rough idea, and maybe we can refine the idea in the comment section.

To be honest, creating new idea every day will be tough. So, if you like this experiment, feel free to contribute and send us your ideas via twitter @ideevc or via email to michael (at) appinvest (dot) de. We’re looking forward to reading and publishing your ideas as well.

Let’s collect hundreds of business ideas – let’s become a business idea machine!
