Elevator Pitch/Formal Proposal

  1. Peanut Butter Squeeze Bottle: I've actually had a bunch of people tell me how annoying it is when they can't get the peanut butter out of the bottom of the jar, so I thought it would be a good idea to make a bottle where you would squeeze the peanut butter out instead of scooping it. I don't think it would cost any more or any less to make squeeze bottles than what it costs to make jars of peanut butter now, but less peanut butter would be wasted therefore more money would be saved. Since they wouldn't be too expensive to make, investors would be gaining money from it. This would benefit society and the standard of living because less food would be getting thrown out and wasted.
  2. Turn off group notifications: Have you ever been in a group chat and keep getting notifications when you don't want to be? I want to make an app that allows you to turn off those notifications, because I know they bother a lot of people. The app would be cheap to make and could cost about $1 for smartphone users to buy, so investors would be making money. Sometimes, we all just need a little peace and quiet and thats hard when you're a part of a group message.
  3. Game where points = food: So many people play games on their phones like Candy Crush or Flappy Bird, so I want to make a game app where the points that they receive from doing well and/or winning are converted to something (food, water, etc.) for people in a third world country who are in need. The app would be cheap to make and we would put a few ads in, as well as making it cost $1 in the app store. While investors might not make a large amount of money from this, it would be a smart investment philanthropically. This would benefit humanity because instead of privileged people just playing games for fun on their smartphones, they would actually be helping people in need.
