1. Digital Services
On this technological era, everything is online so it has to be fast. This is why digital franchises are being the bomb! There is no time, what can be better than doing things in one click? Remember the google micro moments?
When a person wants something, they want it given to them right away, no waiting, I want it and I want it now! And you know what the good thing about digital services is? That you can help the people that ask for it with high margins! As stated before, technological franchises are in the boom because its very "easy" to handle the business. Not because it requires less effort, but because of the added value technology gives these franchises. There are a mix of brick and mortar and technology, the best of both worlds.
2. Bitcoins & Blockchains
Bitcoins and Blockchain businesses are one of the biggest buzzwords in the financial technology industry; They are having an incredible massive demand, as they're having much bigger value than bitcoins to investors thinking about the future. What Bitcoins do is that they decentralise money, they remove the requirement for a third person to enable transactions. Blockchains? Well, now imagine you could do the same but now for computer code. Amazing right?
These two businesses go beyond our imagination, investing in any of this is being one step ahead of the game.

Technology makes our lives easier and because of this, we have gotten used to many goods that we see now as "normal". For example the internet, the Apple Watch, the Garmin gadgets for athletes, etc.. We get used to things being wireless and THAT is why this market is growing because we want to carry the less devices and connected. The less effort the better, having all our devices connected to each other, the BEST.
Biotechnology is one of the strangest and scariest interesting stock market to invest in. In how many other industries are companies striving to save lives? I know! The risk here is that the nature of the industry is there is not guaranteed that it will work, the mean of this is that many investors give money to projects before recieving assurance that the project will, for example, save a life.
Investing may be a great way for people to build their wealth over time, and there is an endless list of investment options to invest in (from laundry & dry cleaning to fitness centers). But this big range of options means people will need to analyze and understand the pros and cons of each investment option to made a decision based on facts.
