Everyone who wants to launch a startup faces in the first line a difficulty in finding a suitable niche that works for building a big business. And because everyone needs to make clear for oneself what passionates him or her, what these strengths and talents are and how to overlay them with market niches in order to solve relevant problems and gaps, I want to give here some inspirational ideas of businesses on the market which sound weird but actually really worked out as being lucrative.

3. Cat Cafés
Do you wish to spend time with a cat, but you do not want to have your own? Then take a visit to a café with cats!
