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.


The Case Western Reserve University classmates developing a new product to patch potholes — basically, a bag of goo — received a $25,000 grant to build their business.

The Innovation Fund of the Lorain County Community College Foundation awarded the money to the group’s startup company, HolePatch LLC. “It’s a big, big boost,” said Mayank Saksena, one of five CWRU students involved in the project that Road Rant profiled in March. The potential of the invention has earned the team more than $40,000 this year to pursue the idea.

In its simplest explanation, their “patch” is a sturdy bag filled with a unique fluid possessing some amazing qualities. It can be dropped in a pothole to provide a temporary repair within seconds. It’s billed as a cheaper, faster and more sustainable alternative to the current method of filling potholes with “cold patch” stone material.
