Ideas for a Start-Up Business

Leaving the corporate life and working for yourself is the dream – but coming up with a brilliant business idea can be tricky, to say the least. However, in 2021, our options are growing all the time and there are hundreds of different demands to be met. Here are just a few ideas to get the brain juices flowing.

CBD and Marijuana Products

Now that marijuana is being legalized in many different countries and states across the globe, the market for CBD and cannabis products is booming and this could be a great industry to step into in its early stages.

Creating and selling CBD or marijuana-infused products – such as edibles – might be a great way for you to make a profit. Like with any business, you’ll need to consider the logistics and investigate proper edible packaging for your products, as well as legislation and regulations before you dive in.

Grocery Delivery Services

With many countries still drifting in and out of lockdowns, and so many people still struggling with COVID-related anxiety, any kind of service you can offer that allows people to stay at home is going to be a sure-fire winner. Grocery delivery services are something that really took off in the past 2 years and this could be a business model that truly helps people who are struggling.

Vegan Products

The world is cottoning on to the value in reducing their consumption of meat, but this is a market that is still fairly sparse in a lot of places. Vegan options aren’t always in abundance, but the demand is growing rapidly all the time. Vegan treats, meal services and even health and beauty products are great options for a start-up business in 2021.


Another mindful swap that many people are making these days is to go low- or zero-waste. Climate change is a huge issue and many of us are just trying to do our bit, which usually involves reducing our waste and minimizing single-use plastics.

You could create zero-waste products such as reusable shopping bags, makeup wipes, or water bottles. Another option is to create other products – such as beauty products – but use a zero-waste business model that allows your customers to return the packaging to be reused. The options here are boundless, and you’ll know that you’re making a positive impact.


As one of the fastest-growing media platforms, getting on the podcast train is a great idea for 2021. If you’re seriously passionate and knowledgeable about a particular topic, especially a niche topic, you could make a huge success of a podcast. In this case, you’ll mainly earn money through sponsorships and advertising, so building an audience will be a top priority.

Virtual Assistance

This is perhaps not quite the same as starting your own business, but if you’re looking to break away from a corporate job this might still be a good option. With so many businesses operating fully online in 2021, the demand for virtual assistants is higher than ever, and you can gain great insight into how certain businesses operate.
