Invisible Girlfriend: Helping You Fake Your Digital Relationships

Pretending to have a significant other is an activity that we, as a civilization, have been participating in for years for a whole variety of reasons. Beyond businesses that fall under the "escort" umbrella, this isn't the first time we've seen a business that aims to capitalize in the industry of romantic deception. 

Outsourced Revenge Businesses: Best Served With Glitter and Poop

I don't know how you feel about getting someone else to do your dirty work for you. But clearly, some of you out there really want to keep your hands clean - just not enough to avoid revenge altogether.

Problem Solver: Beer Company Fuels Corporate Creativity With Drinking Formula

If you thought that "day drinking" was something better left behind with your college days, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn what a new company is encouraging people to do to trigger their creativity.

Beagle Street Insurance: Using Art To Make Policies Fun

There's one big challenge when it comes to the creation of innovative businesses - there's only so much room to manipulate the business structure of more common concepts. These necessary businesses offer key services that we rely upon to go about our lives, and while they may be a dime a dozen to meet the demand, there is room for a little creativity.

SheTaxis: Business Offers Secure Transport To Women On New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is fast approaching, and in just a matter of days transportation services will be in high demand. After all, drinking and driving is a terrible idea, and it is a time for celebrating with food and drink - often in excess. Taxi services come in a variety of formats, and one caters to a specific demographic.

TeatreNeu: Comedy Club Charges Per Laugh

Pay-as-you-go style compensation structures are not new, although they were once innovative in themselves. A la carte sushi allows you to pay per piece, cell phones have you pay-per-minute, and many services are offered by the hour. So, a business featuring a similar payment structure doesn't makes it unique. What does is the unit item that's being paid for - and it's certainly the first we've seen.

Leak Free: Business Has A Simple Solution To Feminine Hygiene Worldwide

The unique needs of a woman are not always recommended by men, but that matters less when there are businesses working hard to make our lives easier. A startup with the desire to better the lives of women around the world is also choosing to give back, proving they're not just about tapping into the revenue in the market.

A Ticket Forward: Business Stems From Viral Search For A Travel Companion Named Elizabeth Gallagher

It stems from a story you've probably already heard about - where a Canadian man named Jordan Axani searched for a Canadian citizen named Elizabeth Gallagher, after a ticket around the world threatened to go to waste when his relationship ended. Then, as a kind of "pay it forward" he started a non-profit business to create similar opportunities for others.

Don't Get What You Pay For From Judgy Snack Vending Machine With Facial Recognition

The New Year will be here before we know it, and with that comes often unattainable resolutions that don't ever seen the turn of the calendar month. We can put fail-safe solutions in place to lead us in the right direction, but there are always temptations waiting to lure us back on the wagon (whatever your wagon of choice may be). If your relationship with food is what you struggle with, now there's a vending machine that can join your resolution success team.
