There’s no denying the inescapability of technology today. Talk about Instagram, Vine, and of course Facebook, is undeniably inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs, and it’s hard to ignore the sexiness of startups. But as much as aspiring entrepreneurs, we’d like to force a tech-oriented idea and desperately succeed Mark Zuckerberg or Kevin Systrom, some of us just aren’t cut out for coding or selling software as a service.
Fortunately for you, there are other less romantic yet potentially profitable ideas out there that are waiting to be explored. These industries might not pull the weight that the limelight in Wired or Fast Company magazine would offer, nor would you be heralded as the next hot shot, but that’s O.K. Look at the bright side. You’ll probably end up turning up a profit far quicker than what Foursquare is capable of.
With that in mind, we’ve pulled together five quickly growing (and interesting mind you) sectors that you might want to investigate to get your creative juices flowing.
