About Springspotters


The Springspotter Network consists of thousands of business and marketing-savvy spotters, who recognize a new business idea when they come across one. A vibrant mix of cool hunting, idea spotting and trend watching, findings simply get emailed to our team of researchers and editors, and may be featured in newsletters like Springwise New Business Ideas and/or TRENDWATCHING.COM.

A person who joins Springspotters will receive non-monetary 'points' for each accepted submission, which can then be redeemed online for gifts, delivered anywhere in the world. Anyone can sign up, no strings attached, no costs involved: from marketers to entrepreneurs, and from students to management consultants. The key requirements are a healthy dose of curiosity and some business smarts. Send in spottings, and, if accepted by the Springspotter Network, you will immediate start accumulating points.

Please note that you will in no way be considered to be employed by Springspotters, nor Springwise, nor TRENDWATCHING.COM.
