Made Hot by: pallefs on August 2, 2010 4:07 am
This is a perhaps unorthodox way to come up with startup ideas: walk around your house or apartment, and look for hot spots. A hotspot can be an area of high information density, clutter, stress, disorganization, or any place that has a suboptimal solution. Then think about a web or cloud solution to that hot spot. The author lists a few examples.

Could this also be called a market gap analysis? Pick a market and find a gap where a need or want is not being fullfilled and there is your business.

I have a relative who invented a "hot spot" item. She created a simple wooden tool which screwed, unscrewed, tightened, adjusted, etc. different stuff in your household.

I recently listened to inventor Hakan Lans and his summer talk radio show. He built his own submarine in his teens and his the inventor of the computer mouse.

This is a useful article, especially for those aspiring to start a Web-based or cloud app business.

The advice is spot on: find a problem in your everyday life and solve it. The author calls it "finding hot spots" and that's an apt term for it.

It would probably be a useful approach even if your business wasn't Web-based. Simply find a problem and solve it.
