The VieDome project. VieDome is a fine example of a pioneering cluster at the cutting edge of technology and society. VieDome is a residential care concept in which domotics (the use of ICT in the home) and care are offered in a non-institutional setting. The concept makes it possible for people like Mrs. Mulhof (see photograph) to live in their own homes. VieDome was developed by Simac, Mextal BV, Kempenstreek Home Care and Aert Swaens Housing Corporation, with the support of the Province and Brabant Innovative Actions. Example-1
Example-2 Car wash If anyone ever saw my business partners and me together in one room, you would never think that we all owned a car wash. True, we might all be Arizona State University alumni who happen to be related, but it's not every day you see a team of eight real estate agents, engineers, scientists, and cocktail waitresses drawn together to start a company. In fact, none of us had a clue what it took to run a car wash in the first place. It took an ungodly amount of blood, sweat and tears to get from Point A to Point B, but eventually we got there. Within six months, the team took a struggling car wash and turned it into a passive-income generating asset.
Example-3 Two ladies have started with producing so-called birth shields and renting party boxes for children
