Brendan Cox, Author of "Strictly Business: How to Crush it as a Young Entrepreneur"

When you’re thinking of starting your own company or business, one of the 1st questions to ask yourself is: Does my business fulfill an actual demand? Success as an entrepreneur relies heavily on bringing answers and solutions to the market, and various startups today are actually just solutions in search of a query. For ambitious entrepreneurs, a list of the best industries for starting a business that serves as a roadmap for winning the most encouraging opportunities. Every year, I converse with business experts and analyze the latest data to identify fields of the economy that are primed for new entrants. Here are some areas that are embracing tomorrow’s fastest-growing startups.

Education technology (Edtech) 

Education technology (edtech) has brought interesting shifts in the world of education.  Edtech is assisting in overseeing continuous evolution, self-development, and corporate learning at a much quicker rate, which allows prospective business owners various opportunities to test out their entrepreneurial abilities. There are many successful and investor-friendly industry sectors that an aspiring entrepreneur can take up within edtech, career advancement, including self-learning, corporate learning, school and campus management ERP in the edtech marketplace. Self-learning is the most charming for investors, with over $400 million drawn since the beginning of the year alone, which again explains why edtech could be an interesting opportunity for entrepreneurs.  

Healthier Junk Foods

Healthy foods are all the craze. Companies are creating new varieties of packaged foods made with minimally processed vegetables and fruits, as well as snacks that mimic the taste and texture of popular junk foods but possess fewer calories and synthetic ingredients. According to IBISWorld, in the U.S., snack food production is a flourishing category that valued about $43 billion during 2019. Healthier snacks are making much of that growth, as millennial consumers increase demand for organic, lower-calorie, and gluten-free alternatives.

Green and renewable energy

Renewable energy was often regarded as a domain restricted to governments, nonprofits, and multinational organizations. But as growing consumer demand, improved cost-effectiveness, and technological change continue to move renewables from mainstream to preferred power sources, the renewable energy industry offers one of the best possibilities to start a global business. Power storage systems, consultancy services, biofuel production, and photovoltaic systems that have all been proven to high-return.

Pet Wearables

Health and wellness monitoring tools are not just for humans. Increasing information about pets’ physical and mental well-being is driving demand for wellness data on pets. The pet wearables market includes GPS and fitness trackers, smart clothing, and cameras. Pet wearable business is expected to increase to $1.7 billion in 2024.

Digital marketing

Digital marketing remains an assuring platform for entrepreneurs that desire to make money by promoting other company’s brands. Last year alone, about $283 billion was spent on digital ads. For entrepreneurs, there are various possibilities to build a brand in this industry. There are also many possibilities in influencer marketing, social media management, digital ad placement, and other future digital marketing niches that can be useful for startups.  

Bottom line

Becoming a prosperous entrepreneur requires a wide variety of knowledge in your target industry along with understanding investment trends within your respective industry. This will assist you to meet your business with potential investors once you have set up a company.
