Crazy investment Ideas

There have been many crazy investment ideas over the years.  Some of these were just plain ridiculous and has no chance of getting up off the ground.  However sometimes someone has a crazy idea that actually starts to make sense.  They will have tapped into a previous unknown market or hit upon the very thing that people will suddenly realise they can’t do without.  If you have a strong business model, have done your research and really believe in your product then no idea can be too crazy for success!

Here are just a few of the craziest investment ideas that have paid off over the years:

  • Doggles – glasses for dogs?  This sounds a bit crazy first off and it’s hard to imagine anyone using their own money or a loan for this investment.  However the Doggles founder really did his research.   Clothing for dogs and cats has been popular for many years now.  Small dogs are very much seen as a must-have accessory in certain circles and many people spend hundreds of pounds on trendy pet clothing.  J Doyle understood this and saw a gap in this marketplace.  If people were willing to pay money for designer pet clothing then why not take it to the next level with pet eyewear.  This business now turns over $5,000,000 per annum and provides fashion wear and also protective eyewear for working dogs and those recovering from eye operations.  A crazy idea that actually makes sense when you look at the strong research and solid business model.
  • Rage Outlets – the Japanese have a culture of extreme politeness in public.  However they get angry and frustrated just like anyone else.  This prompted an entrepreneur to come up with the crazy idea of ‘The Venting Place’. This outlet is simply a place people can go and vent pent-up anger and frustration.  The outlet has a room filled with crockery and glasses.  The customer can go in and spend a few moments smashing everything within their reach.  This business was an instant hit in Tokyo and now turns over millions of dollars every year!
  • Geese Police – a team of expertly trained collie dogs policing geese on golf courses?  Sounds a bit crazy at first. However geese are a real pest on golf courses around the world.  They are aggressive at protecting their territories and their droppings make a real mess on the greens.  Geese are a nuisance and ruin many golfers relaxing rounds.   Dave Marcks realised that border collies are particular good at deterring geese from making their homes on water sections of golf courses.  He trained an elite band of handlers and collies.  These Geese Police are now a fixture on many prominent golf courses and the business nets around $2.5 million every year.  A strange but profitable investment for a start-up loan!
