I got you. πŸ’ͺ Here are the steps you need to follow

  1. Join a startup
  2. Know how they work and what they are doing wrong.
  3. Steal there idea
  4. Do the rights things.
  5. Sell the startup to the company. You are rich boom. πŸ’₯

In very seriousness join a startup for some time period. Execution > Idea.

  • Search twitter with "i wish there was an app for"
  • Make a list of what those apps are.
  • Find what they have in common.

And go from there

For a startup to have an Impact over society, it has to be Unique and Effective idea. And such ideas can't be asked from people, because if someone would have a such idea he/she might gonna keep it to themselves.

You can:

  • Find an emerging idea in other countries and try to import it.
  • Find an emerging new technology and try to have usages
  • Go to some startup's events and find people who have an idea but not the knowledge

I recently found that reddit is a treasure trove of ideas. Just read what people are complaining about in your subreddits of interest, and try to solve their problem. Added benefit is they might become early adopters.

instead of asking for ideas, how about... an app that generates project / startup ideas?

could entries could be user-generated or done by machine learning too

IMO you should start your own startup when you've got this amazing soultion to a problem. you don't think about starting a startup just to start one, it should be like "yo remember that fucking problem we had? iv'e got it! let's tell the world about it"
