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.

At a time when unemployment cannot seem to drop below the 9% mark, the government has drafted some initiatives with the goal of kick starting job creation once again. The project, called “Startup America,” is set to focus on innovation and entrepreneurship. According to The Washington Post, it will work with different programs that are currently in progress to help build investments in startup businesses.

“Entrepreneurs embody the promise of America: the belief that if you have a good idea and are willing to work hard and see it through, you can succeed in this country,” Obama said in a statement. “And in fulfilling this promise, entrepreneurs also play a critical role in expanding our economy and creating jobs.”

The administration launched the project with a high-profile White House event featuring scores of entrepreneurs, some of whom offered testimonials to the job creation possibilities that new businesses can bring to the economy.

“We want to celebrate the work of entrepreneurs, shine a spotlight on entrepreneurs,” Case said.
