Biz Idea: Cell Phone Classes for Older Users

Springwise is featuring a story on a Dutch company that uses students as ‘cell phone’ instructors for older users. They teach txt, bluetooth, voice mail management etc.. The company, Bellendoejezo, has been hired by banks, law firms, and an energy company.

Think of how much apparently basic phone/blackberry/iphone etc. knowledge that students have. Think about how much money businesses spend on smartphones for older users, only to get a small % of the productivity gains available. Could even extend this business to using wireless/hotspots. Basically mobile tech instructors.

Looks like a pretty simple business model that could provide great returns for campus entrepreneurs.
