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: Stack – Revolutionalize AR Commerce.

Augmented reality is rapidly growing. In the US alone, the number of monthly users on the platforms will surpass 100 million, and it’s even estimated that there are now 1 billion AR users worldwide. [1] [2]

The trend would even accelerate with the COVID and other tech innovations.

However, AR commerce isn’t as ubiquitous as PC/mobile commerce. Why? It’s because building solid customer experience in AR requires investments and technical skills today.

Stack offers a simple AR commerce builder and changes the industry completely.

First, you send products to Stack, the same way as Square Photo Studio [3], then it generates beautiful-looking GLB files that you can use for Shopify AR [4], Spark (Facebook) [5], and other AR-supported sites.

Alternatively, you can send photos that you took for a cheaper option.

There are already similar sites like Plattar [6] and Sketchfab Ecommerce [7], but they’re too expensive for SMBs. Stack would differentiate itself by offering more affordable solutions to a broader audience.

Once Stack reaches enough userbase size, it’d be an interesting strategy to build its own AR commerce platform where shoppers can experience every product before their purchases.

With the market increase and device improvements, AR commerce will be the next big paradigm shift.

Early-adopting store owners will benefit hugely (due to low-competition and PR-friendly). And Stack offers a good solution for this opportunity.
