21st Century Office Park Printer Friendly Version
Summary: An eco-minded office park where grass and picnic tables aren't there just for looks.
Details:
Outdoor Work Areas:
Potential features could include shaded seating areas with power ports to enable working outside. The shade could be provided by solar panels. Wifi access points could cover the area for VPN access.
Shared Meal Areas:
Indoor and outdoor shared meal areas would provide gathering places for all employees to meet and network, regardless of company.
Community Culture:
Bulletin boards, a shared park-wide website/intranet, and park-hosted classes/events all contribute to knowledge and resource sharing across companies.
Cost:
Additional cost for running the park and all listed benefits would be passed along to the companies in the park. Metrics should be planned and implemented correctly to analyze utilization and conduct regular SWOT analyses.
Benefits:
Numerous. Environmental focus in construction and maintenance of grounds coupled with proper marketing and niche category could yield a high return on investment if handled correctly.
Reward: Focus on growing environment and community aspects balanced with economic sustainability - then spread the business model so I might work there some day!

Donut Idea Printer Friendly Version
My idea is to open a new kind of donut shop geared to the adult market. With donuts instead of having pink and chocolate icing making them more savoury looking and made with more wholesome foods like potatoes or cheese and less sweet. Like savoury pancakes or pretzels. So there's more of a meal with your coffee. Maybe a whole new chain of savoury donuts cafe's could be made!
Reward: Free savoury donuts with my coffee!!

Digital hand-held nutritional monitor Printer Friendly Version
A portable hand-held device that incorporates a digital bar-code reader, memory for data storage, and usb port could be used with appropriate programming to monitor nutritional intake with real-time convenience. The reader would allow a user to scan the product's bar code for identificantion of the food, and then search its database for "nutrition-fact" data for the product to give a running total of nutritional intake over a day or other time increment.
This would require a digital database of packaged foods with their "nutrition facts" on the device, and also ideally easily downloadable updates for users. Periodic updating of the database through the usb port would allow new products to be added or old ones modified. The ability to select generic foods, like fruits, vegetables and meats, easily would be necessary.
A desirable feature would be to allow users to program a diet and download it to the device, so that a running total of calories, carbs, proteins, fats, etc. could be maintained through the day, and even suggestions made about foods that would stay within the diet for a given meal. Uploading of actual intake data from day-to-day could be used for longer term assessment and correlations to weight-loss or other health issues like diabetes, or high cholesterol levels.
Reward: Healthier people.
