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.

The Arizona Republic:

Eric Wu and friends thought there had to be a better way for college students to find apartments and rental homes via the Web.

Jon Lange, director of sales and a friend of Wu’s since seventh grade, said they started the company because of the frustration they experienced moving every year in college.

The company signs up apartment complexes and other landlords to list their properties on its Web site. Students register on the site and do their own apartment shopping.

LiveByCampus pays students $100 when they notify it that they have moved into a listed property. Complexes and landlords pay LiveByCampus $195 for each apartment or house rented through the site.

The startup’s growth plans remain ambitious. It plans to expand into other Southwestern states and then go nationwide.

Next year, it plans to partner with a real estate brokerage so it can serve students wanting to buy housing near the campuses.
