Social media app for mothers

Now that I have a baby on the way me and my wife got talking about how the daily routine would look like after the baby has come.

We came to realize that it will be extremely important for my wife who will stay at home for probably the first year, to get out there and remain social.

It is really hard for an adult to stay at home with a newborn and remain sane!

Adult contact will be extremely important.

However my wife is not alone in her situation. There must be hundreds of other expecting mothers in the Helsinki area who will be at home for the next year to be.

What if an app would be developed, Tinder style, in which moms who stay at home could casually look for new friends to hang out with.

It could be based on similar likes in your facebook profile, or, based on what you hate! Hatr has been around for a long time and seems to do he trick, matching people based on the things they dislike.

A set of a few questions before you sign up could be enough to determine on a very rough level what you’re in to and what you aren’t.

After you “match” with another mom, just like tinder, a chat window would open where you could arrange for a next brunch date!

Business idea #1

Something I have been thinking about building is an online tool that will help improve security on building sites. And by security I mean Health and Safety.

It would take the form of a template that you can drag and add content to to make it suit your need. For example if today you’re planning to do lifitng work on site you could select the “lift work”-template from the library and click and add other information there.

This other information would most likely be the names of the ones doing the lifting work, the name of the person in charge of the site and general safety and then the name/number of the jobsite.

This would all be done through an app or through a dedicated website to which you have credentials.

Per usage of the website (or per document created) you’d pay a fee.

Thanks to the fact that everyone has a smartphone nowadays you can make your phone into an automatic document signer. Once the safety-contract has been made using the template, you can then click on a “sign here” button upon which you phone would use its touchscreen capabilities to read an autograph.

The users then use their fingers or a stylus to sign on your phone. The document is then stored in a central location and emails are sent to both the workers and the supervisor with the document attached.

That way supervisors have written proof that the workers understand the basic safety rules of the work they are about to undertake, and the workers have had to go through the document so they are aware of the risks and dangers involved. And more importantly how to prevent them.

A next step would then be for the general manager of the construction company to have full overview of the health and safety on his/her jobsites.

They know that on this day at jobsite x there is this kind of work going on. On a calendar they can then see that safety documents were supposed to be created on the previous day and signed today.

If they see that this has not happened (a signed and stored document would be an inserted row in a database somewhere) they can then phone the job site manager on site and ask him/her to collect those documents immediately.

So that everyone is covered should something go wrong, but more importantly prevent something going wrong in the first place!
