So here at CIIE, 6pm not only signifies the end of “official” working hours, but the start of the Crazy Time; when all our craziness manifests into random business ideas. Ideas that could potentially work, and ideas that are fun. We never really act on these ideas since we’re busy supporting other entrepreneurs’ dreams, but we thought it would be fun to create an IDEA WALL that could be home to some of these ingenious ideas.
Here’s listing a few of our ideas. We invite anyone visiting CIIE to leave their mark on the Idea Wall.
Sushi Bar + Art Gallery
With the lack of Sushi in this city and my love for art, I’d like to see one of these sprouting up, providing a new kind of elite culture in Ahmedabad
Self Watering Planters
Have you ever found yourself rushing late to office and then remembering that you hadn’t had time to water your plants? Self watering planters are sure to make a lot of money since there is a huge market segment of people who forget to water plants, and this could be of great use to them.
Sale of Hydroponic Window Farms
This will work probably in Europe and definitely not in India, where people are more interested in growing their own herbs, rather than depending on the market and other farmers and growers. A healthy option for busy people.
Creating the biggest Minion factory- (manufacturing and sale of minion toys)
Look at CIIE for starters, people are crazy about Minions. I want to create a Minion Manufacturing factory. Minions will be made in all shapes, sizes and textures for the minion hungry people of India.
A reverse countdown for two wheelers to indicate the level of petrol in the tank in terms of distance that can be covered .. 1000m.. 500m..250m.. you’re all outta luck!
Mosquito Recognition App
If you click a picture of the mosquito that has bitten you, the app will tell you about the history of the mosquito and let you know about the probable diseases you are likely to get from the said mosquito
QR codes for emergency situations
A QR code tattoo with all important information about a person’s blood group, medicines they are allergic to etc. so doctors don’t have to waste time running tests in case of an emergency. They can simply scan the QR code for information.
One click marriage
A fully automated online wedding. An application linked to Facebook that allows people to marry each other with the click of a button. With one click, a proposal is sent to the bride/groom and after they accept, a request is sent to the Marriage Bureau which then issues the certificate.
One click divorce
Same as above, except for the divorce bit.
Venture Fund for investing in students
Instead of having students take loans, the Venture Fund will invest in a person/student. The student needs to pay a percentage of their salary till the time of exit.
Credit rating system for Early Stage Entrepreneurs
Giving them access to capital where there is none.
An online portal for entrepreneurs to meet potential co-founders.
Thank you and stay tuned to more ideas from CIIE
