by Caroline Eastman

By using the Internet and a few resources borrowed from different sources, people can make their ideas a reality. Keeping this in mind and by adding a little creative and innovative thinking people today have started their own businesses. For this, people need some extra capital to get things going. All you need to do is have an amazing business plan and the ability to present your business idea so well that it compels venture capitalists or banks so that they can issue you the money right away.

Here are a few startups that you can have a look at:

Active Protective.

The company develops wearable protection for the elderly who have a certain disability or deficiency. One of their products called the Tango Belt that has wearable airbags was something that caught my eye. These airbags open up and save the elderly or disabled people in case there is an accident on the road or in the home and make sure they have safe mobility if they are living alone. This is one of the ideal products the company develops for people who cannot walk or might get into an injury by falling or due to reckless movement.

Zypp.

Zypp is an electric scooter sharing app that helps people throughout India and can be unlocked for INR 5/- only and they charge a nominal fee of INR 1 for a minute. Zypp has more than 500, 000 users in India alone and the number is still growing. One of the most interesting things about Zypp is that the major part of the funding comes from venture capitalist firms and Indian banks. Apart from that, using the app is easy and all you need to do is download an app to unlock the vehicle, ride it and park it at a Mobycy parking zone once you are done with your ride.

Lynq.

Loop Earplugs are one amazing gadget to have and flaunt while you are in college or when you are traveling.

Final Thoughts.

If you are planning to launch your own startup you can kick off by doing proper market research and the prototyping the product. Also, it is a good idea to look around you and think about a product that can help people in your neighborhood solve a problem. For instance, if there are many tourists in your area, you can start off by giving out rooms on rent and then move further by adding an app that can help them book a room with you before they plan on coming to your city or country. Or if there are many students from different countries around you, you can provide them with home-cooked food at competitive rates. In short, ideas are floating almost everywhere around you.
