Backlog: The best way to manage your projects. Wiki, tasks, files all in one place. This is like taking good parts of JIRA and Trello, combined into one tool. You can start for free.

Square: You might have already used Square before – but the company offers a wide range of payment solutions to get your business off the ground, from card payment to invoice to ecommerce.

Business idea: Histravel – Travel Booking while Learning History.

Are you a big fan of learning history? And also a big fan of traveling around the world? If you answered yes to both questions, Histravel might be your best partner. Seeing is believing – visiting historical places you deeply care about is life-changing.

History geeks love reading history books and learning why the World War happened, what the ancient Greek philosophers were thinking, and how humans became humans. But most of the knowledge ends up being unused and forgotten. Histravel fixes this.

It’s a piece of software that syncs with digital readers like Kindle. When you highlight sections of history books, it automatically sends you discount tickets to visit the related places (experience similar to Readwise) – whether it’s international flights or domestic bus tours.

It’s free to use and makes money through the referral commissions. Given the COVID, it might be better to offer virtual sessions as Airbnb does, or partner with schools worldwide to help their school trip planning (visiting places students learned about).

Travel booking distribution has been dominated by search engines. This is good for people who know their destinations but not for those who want to explore.

By helping people visit the places they learned, Histravel can offer a unique experience both in learning and traveling.
