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:
A Liverpool teenager has had his business dream turned into a reality, after convincing Sir Richard Branson to invest in his mobile cake venture.
Aaron Booth, an A Level student at Liverpool Community College (LCC), met Sir Richard during the Global Entrepreneurship Congress being held in the city this week.
Aaron is a member of a new initiative by the College called the Liverpool Entrepreneurs Club, where students who have business ideas work with business mentors to turn these ideas into reality.
He was invited by Gazelle, a partnership of colleges promoting enterprise to pitch questions to Sir Richard and other business leaders.
Aaron took the opportunity to explain his business idea to Sir Richard. Called the Cake Booth, Aaron plans to open a mobile stall selling cheesecakes and other dessert treats.
