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.

Here is a list of entrepreneurs from iOL Scitech who have changed the way we live today.

Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook; £11bn

Facebook connected 500 million people across the world and inspired a Hollywood film along the way – as well as generating £11bn for its founder – not bad for a college drop-out.

At 27, Mark Zuckerberg is the second-youngest billionaire in the world.

Howard Schultz

Starbucks; £1.5bn

From humble beginnings selling pots and pans, Brooklyn-born Howard Schultz’s notion that coffee should be an experience rather than just a drink revolutionised consumption of the drink across the world.

Daniel Abraham

Slim-fast!; £1bn

As the inventor of this easy form of dieting, the US army veteran from Long Island sold the idea of “a shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch, and a sensible dinner” to the world.
