Startup ideas for post-pandemic world

rubyroidlabsrubyroidlabs subscriber Posts: 5 Member

I want to share some ideas of business trends from Rubyroid Labs that will be highly relevant after the lockdown period:

Employee sharing app that allows companies to exchange resources in the high/low-demand period.

Barter tools. Experts foretell that communities will trade among themselves using micro currencies and barter. You can develop a platform that simplifies the barter economy process.

Indoor cleaning monitoring. The fear of social places will remain long after the pandemic ends. Introducing a system of cleaning tracking apps that would connect managers, cleaners, and clients might help.

Outbreak zone indicator. Based on data from social media, local hospital data, you could create an app that shows outbreak hot zones on the map. Users will be notified that these places are not safe to go to.

Mobile consumer services.  Mobile beauty salons and hairdressers allow providing service in the lockdown period, which propels the need for apps that can help businesses and clients connect, schedule appointments, keep in touch, etc.

Gift vouchers. Some entrepreneurs don’t have access to technologies to sell their products. You can create a platform to help businesses sell their gift cards.

AR & VR. The more people get used to VR and AR entertainment through self-isolation, the higher are the opportunities for it to become one of the most prominent post-lockdown startup trends.

    Hello! This post is really insightful, especially the point about Employee sharing app (although it's quite depressing :( )

    I think the whole covid situation has shown that many industries aren't developed and considered enough to be ready to adapt to issues like that. For example, the inability to work online.. So, I hope many services will review their working modes and improve them..

    Hello, this is nice topic.

    One question though. I just signed up for this community 20 minutes ago. Is it for US only or world wide, please?

    I am from Indonesia-Asia. The un-employment rate is getting higher and higher. If there is an idea to facilitate them, would be great.

    "Employee sharing app that allows companies to exchange resources in the high/low-demand period." sounds interesting but need to be careful on each company secret.
