Startup Perks Go Remote—and Take a More Inclusive Approach
This is a good example of how business is changing because of the increase in remote work.
“Tech companies are swapping on-campus gourmet chefs for free snack deliveries, but they’re also stepping up childcare support and mental health services.”
Business Opportunities: There will be a lot of new services helping companies support their remote workers. How about a concierge service to do boring tasks for remote workers in your city? Kind of like a TaskRabbit but more targeted. You could sell to companies rather than individuals.
There will be software needed to manage online subscriptions of remote workers, asset management apps to keep track of who has what equipment at home, etc.
There is a need for different versions of child care, like on-demand, vetted nannies. Homeschooling tutors, etc.
