“I have a startup idea.” Most people have heard this phrase a few times from friends or colleagues, or maybe they’ve said it themselves. Uber and Careem have become sources of inspiration for young entrepreneurs, but there are other unconventional, out of the box, and weird ideas. In this article, we’re shedding light on five of the weirdest startup ideas. Let’s get started!
This startup targets fashionistas with sweet tooth and chocoholics. Their products are nonedible; wearable pastries for your feet. What’s that? Hand-made shoes and bags with designs inspired by pastries. You can find a collection of bags and shoes with designs that look as if they were made of chocolate or doughnuts! Can’t imagine? This picture is worth a thousand words.
Nothing says I love you like flowers, but what if the message someone wants to convey is the complete opposite? The name of this startup speaks for itself. If you’ve been dumped, or you’re upset with someone, just choose one of their bouquets of dead flowers, enter the recipient’s address, and write a message (optional). The sender can request that they stay anonymous, and the recipient will never know who sent them the flowers.
Let’s forget all about the dead flowers and drama for a while. How do you like your potatoes? Fried or grilled? Well, the potatoes here are real, unlike the pastries of Shoe Bakery, but you cannot eat them either.
Potato Parcel lets you send messages to your loved ones using potatoes. Visit their website, write your message (130 characters maximum), and they will write your message on a potato. You may even upload a photo!
Hateful, harmful, or threatening messages are not allowed; the order is either canceled or the customer is asked to change the message.
Do you want to buy or rent a house in the USA, and find out if anyone has died at that address (especially because of violence or suicide)? Visit the website, enter the address, and you’ll get a report with the deaths that occurred, their cause (if available), fire incidents, or any sex offenders within the area.
A violent death can decrease a home’s value by 25% and increase its time to sell up to 50% longer.
Would such incidents affect your decision?
DogSpot founder is a dog lover who couldn’t take his dog around the city because many places don’t allow dogs. He had to leave him at home as he wouldn’t tie him up for fear of getting loose or stolen.
That’s how he got inspiration for his startup idea; sharable, high-tech dog houses in different locations. Download DogSpot app on your mobile for reservation. DogSpot is equipped with a camera, heating system, AC, and auto sanitizing.
Those were the weirdest startups we could find. If you know other out of the box startups, let us know in the comments.
