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.


Sakkijha says what she learned in the MBA she completed this past June at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management helped develop her business idea.

“We learned about marketing, finance, strategy, human resources — all key things you need to know to start and grow a business,” Sakkijha says. “Also, being an entrepreneur is all about taking risks, but the MBA teaches how to mitigate and take calculated risks.”

While completing her program, Sakkijha also had access to StartMeUp Ryerson, a student-run organization that provides resources and funding to aspiring business owners. The group runs the school’s annual Slaight Business Plan Competition, in which business students present their ideas to a panel of judges consisting of experienced entrepreneurs. Mejuri won the top prize — $25,000, plus two years of mentoring from an entrepreneurship professor.

Do you think an education can give entrepreneurs the upper hand?
