I received lots of comments when I posted Startup Worth Exploring In 2010 . Entrepreneurs are always looking for that new twist to their businesses or a new idea they can invest in or develop themselves. I keep a startup idea journal just in case. The opportunities are numerous as new technologies emerge. The ideas I write are shared with friends from time to time. Instead of sharing them with friends, I want to share them with you. Let me know what your impressions are of these ideas, which one is your favourite and if you don’t have a favourite. These are problems and trends I find interesting but not necessarily my favourite startup categories . You can also share your idea with readers.
