Interest Area Connections

Yesterday’s new business ideas covered a wide range of industries: fashion, games, food, travel and outdoor recreation. I’ve come across resources with interesting links to your ideas you may choose to investigate:

  • Music industry: Check out Ghetto Web Blaster created by Matt Kiser, an alum of our journalism program.
  • Those interested in fashion might want to check out the latest issue of Entrepreneur as it has a spread titled “Style Files” featuring several interesting businesses.
  • The same issue of Entrepreneur has a story on gamification and how it’s being used in a wide range of industries for both internal and external audiences.
  • And of course, check out blogs from your peers who highlighted industry movers and shakers.

Topics on Upcoming Challenges

We also discussed taglines that some of you were contemplating. Inc. Magazine has a feature titled, “Is Your Tagline a Help or a Hindrance.”

And we discussed that you’re going to have to identify how to make money with your startup. Here’s a great piece to digest from Paul Carr about his journalism “somewhat-weekly newsletter” NSFWCORP I found on PandoDaily.
