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:
VentureBeat reports that startups with business and financial tools should check their calendar for Aug. 16.
That’s when Intuit, the maker of popular financial software like QuickBooks and Quicken, will be holding its second annual Entrepreneur Day, where it invites startups to its Mountain View, Calif., campus to meet with executives and discuss business partnerships.
The event will include question-and-answer sessions with Intuit founder Scott Cook, Chief Technology Officer Taylor Stansbury, and “speed dating” sessions where entrepreneurs meet one-on-one with business and development representatives.
Intuit describes Entrepreneur Day as a “first date” that could lead to a long-term business relationship. Vice President of Open Innovation Jan Bosch said the idea is to find companies that complement Intuit products without competing with them directly.
The application deadline is July 16. Apply here.
