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.

FOX Small Business:

Through its StartUp Academy program, Bain Capital Ventures (BCV) will recruit top-tier technical talent from programs at leading universities such as Duke, Harvard, MIT, Princeton, Stanford and the University of Waterloo and place them in engineering and product management positions at startups funded by BCV. BCV is the venture capital and growth equity arm of Bain Capital.

The StartUp Academy’s inaugural class this year selected 21 students from an applicant pool of 779 to participate in a nine-month trial of the program. The participating companies are expected to continue to hire aggressively though the program and recruitment for the 2013 class will begin this fall, BCV said.

When they join the program, students are placed in full-time or intern-level positions at one of BCV’s growing portfolio of companies. All the participating companies are market-leading startups such as BloomReach, Rent the Runway and SurveyMonkey.

In addition to working alongside the management teams of these companies, StartUp Academy members will get exposure to investment partners of BCV and gain exclusive access to entrepreneurial events hosted and sponsored by BCV in Boston, New York and the San Francisco Bay Area.
