Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.


Though often overlooked, there are plenty of companies like Point B that build their businesses organically through revenues and profits.

In fact, a recent report from Babson College and the London School of Business concluded that fewer than one in 10,000 companies in the United States receive their initial funding from venture capital firms. The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor report also found that entrepreneurs provide 65 percent of their startup capital, with the rest of the funding typically coming from friends, family or co-workers.

If self-funding by entrepreneurs and informal investments dried up, entrepreneurship would wither and die,” the authors wrote.
