Trendwatching.com‘s latest briefing “Innovation Jubilation” contains some great insights into innovation, and looks at over 50 interesting ideas to help spur your thinking about your new (or next) venture.
Ideas I really like include FreePaperCups – paper cups with advertisements on them given to corporate customers to stock their pantries – and Hotel X, which outfits its rooms with refurbished furniture purchased from ordinary consumers. Save the environment, benefit consumers, and provide a new service? Sounds like a great idea to me!
Trendwatching.com‘s sister site Springwise.com is also a fabulous resource for new business ideas. If you’re in the business of creativity and ideas, you’d do well to have both sites in your RSS feeds.
