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.

Transportroboter Kiva Systems

Long after Webvan.com’s legendary flameout in 2001, the online grocer’s biggest problem never left Mick Mountz’s mind.

As employee No. 400 at the dot-com, he knew that it simply cost too much to fulfill online orders. Labor was the killer cost.

Ten years later, he’s solved the labor problem with his company Kiva Systems.

Kiva’s mobile-robotic fulfillment system can transforms a warehouse into a dynamic, self-organizing and self-adapting operation with its robots. Kiva uses hundreds of mobile robotic drive units to bring inventory on mobile shelves directly to workers, allowing easy and efficient access to all inventory items at all times.
