8 people tell us their business ideas

There is nothing under 30s like more than a ‘side hustle’ and it feels like everybody that I know has a business idea that’s going to set them up. I decided to ask around and see what big ideas people were coming up with for their first business.

Jackie, 23

“I worked on a business for a bit which was a program that allows you to access your computer screen from your phone and vice versa. It didn’t work out though. It gets super complicated when crossing windows and Apple products because neither party want to sell to the other and the tech giants are super difficult.”

Max, 26

“I listen to a lot of podcasts on my phone while driving, and it’s a bit frustrating to arrive to my destination without having time to listen to the whole podcast. My idea is an app that suggests podcast content based on your trip duration.”

Isa, 24

“So, there has been a string of package thefts in the suburbs around me. I was discussing this with my mum, and we came up with the idea of a service where people have their packages delivered to us and we hold them until they’re able to come to pick them up.”

Rafael, 18

“My idea is a website that can detect your PC specs and will give you the best tailored setting choice for your PC based off what you want to accomplish in the game. It’s a hassle to find the best settings on YouTube or Google specific to your PC and usually it never works, so why not make a tailoring website.”

Zach, 29

“I decided to set up a drumstick subscription business, where a drummer would receive a fresh set every month. As it turns out, customers pay larger music companies big bucks for the instruments, not the drumsticks… so they sell drumsticks for almost nothing. When a drummer needs drumsticks, they would buy them at one of those bigger stores and not at mine. Safe to say it didn’t work out!”

Tim, 25

“I’m a short guy and when I’m out at bars and clubs, I am always the last person served at the bar, even if I’ve been waiting the longest. When it’s crowded, I can be waiting up to 20 minutes for a drink. I want to make a subscription service that lets you cut lines at bars and clubs. I would gladly pay a monthly fee to never be ignored in line again!”

Eddie, 24

“It’s like Tinder, but for food. You know when you don’t know what to order, but you know what you don’t want to order… you just scroll through till you find one.”

Tahnee, 29

“A real time bidding site for babysitters. If they are in the area and they are free than they appear on an app and parents who want an hour or two off to can bid on DM them.”
