Inside the Innovation Huddle | Halloween

VFI_Blog Banner_Halloween Innovation

Every week, our team does an internal huddle where we share the most disruptive and exciting startups and emerging technologies from around the world. The only rule is that they canโ€™t solve a current client challenge directly. This way, we retain our superpower of spotting creative adjacencies and disruptive outer-horizon solutions.

This Huddle takes a look at Halloween themed ventures looking to disrupt this $10.6B holiday. 

  • Oomph! was born out of a passion for ๐Ÿฌ candy, and a desire to be better. They believe that people should expect more from your ๐Ÿญ candy: More flavor, more functionalityโ€”more of everything good! And theyโ€™re here to bring you products that are better for you, better for the ๐ŸŒ world, and just plain better for everyone who loves candy!
  • Ever wonder what happens to old Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ costumes after being disposed? For Days is on a mission to end ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป fashion waste and create industry change. They make organic, non-toxic, and 100% โ™ป๏ธ recyclable basics. They collect used items from any brand and keep them out of landfills.
  • MIT Media Lab developed the ๐Ÿ‘ป Spirits Media. Object removal algorithms ๐Ÿ“Š have been getting a lot of attention lately. By removing people from ๐Ÿ–ผ images, they have concerned people about automated โ›”๏ธ censorship, changed the way we think about ๐Ÿ“ฑ digital media, and even spurred a cultural movement surrounding the aesthetics of absence.
  • The Gummy Project sells low-sugar, plant-based ๐Ÿฌ gummy products. Their products are peach ๐Ÿ‘ bees and ๐Ÿ‰ watermelon sharks. They also provide gluten-free gummies.
  • Crypt TV is an operator of an online ๐ŸŽฎ video platform intended to produce and distribute scary ๐Ÿ‘ฝ video content. The company's platform creates short scary ๐ŸŽฅ movies that users can see on their phones ๐Ÿ“ฑ and tablets, enabling fans to engage themselves in various horror stories.
