Alright, now for some startup ideas.
#1 MoviePass for newsletter/Substack subscriptions: This would be a bundle of subscriptions. Writers get paid a portion of the monthly subscription based on how much their content is read.
This also serves as a discovery mechanism for readers to find new writers and newsletters, which is still quite hard.
#2 Airbnb Experiences for team-building/company events: This would be a marketplace that connects HR teams, EAs, and executives looking to put on events for their company with providers.
It would allow them to filter by:
Virtual vs. in person
Size of team
Objectives/culture tenets, e.g., grit, entrepreneurship, trust
This is currently a huge PITA to do well.
#3 B2B sales deck review service: Your sales deck is put in front of prospective buyers who provide feedback. The buyers record audio or video feedback on the deck’s messaging, the company’s product description, deck design, etc. The company can specify questions they want to be answered or want feedback on.
The reviewers are paid for their time. Big company folks often like helping and working with startups so many are likely already interested. Couple that with an opportunity to make some extra cash, and boom.
Beyond feedback on your sales deck, it might also land the feedback requesters some leads.
