1st Part of Top Ten Business Ideas for Ahmedabadis
1 Adventuram - There are many people who will pay a lot to get some thrill out of life. They like to be adventurous and are eager to do something exciting. It’s time to make money by giving these people what they are ready to die for. Giving them a chance to go for Bungee Jumping is not what i am suggesting. But, design and develop a place where you can organize different events & games like those shown in “ Khatron ki Khiladi”. Already Ahmedabad lacks places to chill out, so this will surely rock hard.
2 Wordmaniac - For a good command on English communication, one needs to have a good stock of words. Word stock can be increased by memorizing and practicing. So, start a training programme where school/college going students and professionals can join the training program to increase their word- power. This will help them leapfrog in their career. There can be 30 modules of 1 hour each. In a months time, one can learn thousands of new words which will bring fluency in their communication.
3 MagicDuster - There is so much dust at different places in the house which cannot get cleaned during daily cleaning or “jharu-pocha”. Vacuum cleaner can be used to clean those places. Since, many people even after having vacuum cleaner at home, can't afford 4-5 hours in a week to clean their house. Their is huge business opportunity in tapping this laid back attitude and time-constraint problem. With 60 lakh population residing in at least 12 lakh homes, even if 1 percent is tapped, you can be a millionaire in a year.
4 Schoolib.com - There are only few schools who can afford to have a Library catering to all students from different classes. So why not have a common Library open for all schools in Ahmedabad. Instead of having a physical presence, let it be online. With computers becoming cheaper than smart phones and internet penetration spreading like wild-fire, there is ample chance that this will hit the bulls-eye.
5. VisitAd - Most of the visiting cards have the back side blank. The idea is to use that space for Advertising in a unique manner. The back side of the card will have 8 different Brands giving their small coupon/stamp type advertisement. The user will get a discount on just showing the visiting card at specific locations. The person who will get this type of card printed will also have two benefits. First, people will not throw away the visiting card as it also works as a discount coupon. The second advantage is that these cards will be printed cheaply as the advertisers payment will subsidize the card price. Money is to be made by managing a gap between the price of printing cards and money collected by advertisers.
So any Ahmedabadi out there willing to take a shot?
