Hot new Startups with Unique Concepts

Let me tell you about some Startups with Unique Concepts. Some say that startup maniacs or those who tirelessly create and pursue new business ventures are playing important roles in promoting economic growth. The idea sounds logical. More business endeavors mean more economic activity. However, not every startup gets the attention and funding it needs especially when it does not have a viable and appealing concept behind it.

The following are some of today’s hottest startups distinct from others because of their atypical but viable ideas.

MeterHero

MeterHero

The main idea behind MeterHero is that if you get paid for the savings you make. It acts as a sustainability exchange wherein you can offset the water and resource or energy you use by buying the savings made by schools, buildings, and households. You sign up for an account, link your utility (for water, natural gas, and electricity) accounts, track your usage, and get paid when you save. MeterHero pays $1 for every 100 gallons, therm of natural gas, or 10 kWh of electricity saved. Accordingly, MeterHero is applicable anywhere in the world, as long as there are verifiable utility bills available. If you are wondering where MeterHero gets the funds to pay for the savings you make, it’s a rather complicated setup that is quite long to be adequately explained on this short post. What’s important is that the system pays as you save on your energy/resource use, and help conserve the environment.

FeeX

FeeX

Touted as the “Robin Hood of fees,” FeeX is a web-based service created to identify hidden charges in retirement and investment funds. It aims to help users start paying less by scanning for low-fee alternatives to investments with similar risks and returns or by suggesting ways for optimization. With populations in the biggest economies of the world becoming older, FeeX is a convenient service helps people make the most of their retirement savings and investments.

Jukedeck

Jukedeck

Providers of free stock images or clip art about but you can hardly find audio or music clips that are free to use for whatever purpose. What if you created a YouTube or Facebook video that went viral but you used audio clips or music on it that is bound to eventually attract the attention of eager copyright claimers? Naturally, you will be forced to remove the sound elements and ruin your popular video. Jukedeck was created to address instances like this. It automatically generates unique and copyright-free music through artificial intelligence. Just pick a genre and Jukedeck does the composing.

Dataiku

Dataiku

Dataiku offers its Data Science Studio designed to enable data scientists to run statistical models and create their own predictive algorithms. It also facilitates the development of end-to-end data workflows. In the age of the Internet and Big Data, what Dataiku is offering matters and is something that has a lot of potential for growth. Dataiku counts BlaBlaCar and Vente-privee.com as some of its most notable clients. Last year, it made a €1 million profit and has completed a €3.2 million investment round early this year.

 

Too.Me

Too.Me

Too.Me is more than just a messaging app for iOS and Android devices. Released in January this year, Too.Me makes communication more exciting by turning words into animations. There are talks that Too.Me will be adopted as an add-on for Viber but there is no official word on the matter yet.
