There’s a neat trick VCs use to find promising start-ups. They ask themselves : “does this industry operate in the same way it did in the 1980s?”. This helps highlight parts of the economy ripe for disruption. Here's 4 Industries ready for THAT Next Big Thing 👇.
1. Massage services
They have not changed over the past 30 years. Potential solution: create a holistic experiences around massages in a space you could call “the Sleep Clinic”. You’d be surprised how much people would be willing to pay for a really good nap.
2. Amusement Parks
Amusement Parks are like cruises and swimming pools; they’re an opportunity to pay way too much to be way to close to someone else’s half-naked, sweaty child. Potential solution : use NFTs to create a brand-universe.
3. New Car Sales
As far as I understand, the only reason the industry is still alive is because the only thing Americans hate more than the environment is public transports. Potential solution : giving its cars away for free (it makes sense if your read the article, trust me).
4. Movie Theaters
We’re not eager to go back to an over-priced seat, eating over-salted pop-corn, in front of two teenagers fondling each other, to see a movie that’ll come out on Disney+ in a week. Potential solutions : 200$ tickets (it makes sense if your read the article).
