Ever since 2020 brought us pandemic and lockdown, many traditional businesses had to change from their roots or even to shut down. These events gave the space for some new ideas.
Back to 2020
As turbulent as it was, 2020 gave us a lot of opportunities. For example with everything switched to online mode, video conference platforms (some of which you can see in our review section) had exponential growth in use. With this, the companies that provide them had a huge rise in the value of their stocks. Another good business idea, if you are not that good with software, was producing medical and hygienical equipment such as face masks, hand sanitizers, medical gloves… since the need for them was huge, especially when the pandemic started. But what about now?
Ideas for 2021
Most of the ideas include some basic knowledge of computer using, since the whole of 2020 was practically online, this showed us that many things can be done this way:
