5 Websites to Get Inspired for Your Startup Idea

So you’ve decided that starting your own business is the right thing for you. You love being your own boss, working on projects you find meaningful and you have the energy that’s needed to get things done. But where to find the right startup idea? Here are 5 websites that can help you to find the inspiration you are looking for.



Do you want to start something innovative? Check what people miss on the market at IdeasWatch. Creative minds share here (and keep sharing) hundreds of ideas they would love to use if they existed. Thanks to global scope of IdeasWatch you can discuss their business models, technical solution or marketing with other entrepreneurs, investors or geeks from all over the world. The international community also helps to spot similar projects in another country. If you fall in love with one of the ideas you can easily form a team with other people passionate about the same idea and start a business together.


Would you rather start something that already exists and proved itself? Keep an eye on Springwise. More than 8,000 spotters bring new ideas from many countries on daily basis. The editors choose them very carefully to keep the high quality. Feel free to get inspired and try to run a similar idea in your region or in a different way. The website is visually very appealing thanks to pictures and nice headings for each idea. An advantage and drawback at the same time is the number of subscribers – more than 150,000 people receive the same idea, so act quickly!

Cool Business Ideas

Want another source of realized ideas like Springwise? From time to time look at Cool Business Ideas. The concept is practically the same, however, they have a much smaller community of spotters and less subscribers. This makes the ideas more scarce (less people want to do it). There are usually tangible products you might want to import to your country if they are not already there. The ideas differs from Springwise so there is no reason not to check both.

Killer Startups

Looking for emerging internet startups? Subscribe to Killer Startups. This site allows anyone to submit a startup for free. It is therefore popular among early-stage entrepreneurs to promote their projects. From the websites featured in this article, they publish by far the most startups per day (15+). The quality is varying though. Some of the startups turn out later to be quite big,while others keep their school-project-look and never grow up. Nevertheless, both are inspirational. It might not be that hard to catch up when you see a good idea that is poorly realized.

Do you like concept of Killer Startups but prefer less ideas in exchange for higher quality? Try You might even get a special opportunity to be one of the first who uses them. The sites are usually very professional and probably with investors backing them. You might not be able to start the very same business easily but you can somehow think about featured startups and get inspired indirectly.

    Springwise wants you to copy other businesses?

    • Michal

      To adopt, not to copy.

      Here is Springwise in their own words:

      “Springwise scans the globe for the most promising business ventures, ideas and concepts that are ready for regional or international adaptation, expansion, partnering, investments or cooperation.”

    Great sites for ideas. I also would recommend checking out Hacker News which is a community for hackers. Some of the posts are people pitching their startup idea to others.
