I Can Haz Business Ideas?

The core part of my MBA program involves two major projects. The first one is a business simulation using something caled Capsim, which we are partway through, and the second one is to write a business plan.

But before writing a business plan, one needs to have an idea for a business! This is where you come in, gentle reader. We are at the stage where we have to think of a business opportunity. Essentially, we want to find a “need” that isn’t being met by any currently existing business – an unmet need that we can then build a business around. At this point, we are wanting to generate as many ideas as possible – the more creative, the better! We have a few ideas, but I thought I’d check in with you – some “crowdsourcing,” if you will – to expand our thought processes.
