Where can business ideas come from?

Business ideas can arise from different sources for example; own inspiration, of a need of the market, of certain tendencies, based on the new technology.

Let's explore a little the different sources where these business ideas can come from:

Own creativity: The idea can arise from a thought, from an idea of ​​our own or even seeing a need in our environment.

New inventions: When the idea comes from an investigation that has been carried out on that approach that implies a commercial orientation.
If a business idea is not put into practice or action, it just stays in idea

New Technologies: technology every day is inciting the emergence of new methods of doing business and ways in which these are offered to prospects.

Social Trends: In our environment demographic, cultural, political, etc. changes are emerging that create new needs in society. Therefore, as a result of observing these changes, business ideas can arise in order to create new products or services.

Acquired knowledge: An entrepreneur who has acquired certain academic training, better business ideas will arise related to their specific studies, because they will know better what services or products can offer the market to be directed.

Experience gained: The same goes for the work and professional experience that a person has. The knowledge you have of a certain industry or sector helps you see the needs it may have because it will be easier to have a business idea.
