For each business idea, we’ll show you real-world examples of other entertainment app businesses to help you see what it really takes.

Here's the full list:

1. Create a voice recording platform ($0/year)

Nicholas Phair from London, UK started telbee over 2 years ago, a voice recording platform.

  • Revenue: $0/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 2
  • Location: London, UK

Before telbee, I had founded a couple of other businesses - I’ve always been an entrepreneur by nature.

At the time that I came up with the idea of telbee, I was working in the insurance space, but taking some time out to reflect deeply on what my goals for the next five years were.

When I first came up with the idea of launching a business around voice tech, it was based on a simple realization: While modern automation does help make things quicker and easier for businesses, we seem to have lost a lot of the personal side of business-to-customer relationships.

2. Start a music streaming app ($0/year)

Joel Fickson Ngozo from Lilongwe, Malawi started Vwaza Multimedia over 1 year ago, a music streaming app.

  • Revenue: $0/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 2
  • Location: Lilongwe, Malawi

In 2020 I posted on Twitter and Facebook of an idea that would empower African creators in the music business by making sure they would earn something. I looked at how most digital distribution platforms don't really pay artists that well and let alone African Artists. This is how the idea came up. I received a lot of motivation from so many people telling me that I should develop the app. So I embarked on the journey of developing it.

I once was a rapper and I have friends who always complain about their music not selling or even getting nothing out of it. That combined with my technical expertise in programming, I began developing the web app and later on started working on the mobile app.

Since I'm close to so many friends who are into music, I sent them the beta for them to try it out and give feedback. It was great because they really loved it and that kind of helped me a lot in the whole development life cycle.
