    Anyone ever thought of a really good business model? Not just like an invention or "opening up a bar in a college town" but something really neat and innovative? I was looking at some websites that have ideas, and its amazing how reading about one idea leads to another so quickly.

    Better question: if anybody thought up something that good, would they share it with everyone on a forum? ;)

    why not? maybe they dont have the resources to pursue it or something like that. i need to think of a good concept for one of my classes, and just thought some people would like to bounce ideas off eachother

    I have a great business plan: start threads on online forums and try to take credit for other people's ideas :rolleyes:

    An online auction house that takes an unfair cut of the money and encourages fraud might be a hit.

    You know, I don't think they do, they seem preoccupied with banning certain clothes and buying them all iPods and PSPs

    I have no idea how this would work, but it seems good:

    With a lot of heavy shopping bags in a trolley, it is awkward to lift each one out of the trolley and then put them into the car boot. Imagine having one edge of a trolley openable, with a simple lock, and just dragging the bags into the boot, possibly with rollers on the 'floor' of the trolley...

    I came up with this around age 12 BTW

    Don't the Americans call it a trunk? Boot is so much better ;)

    I'm hoping to start my own business here in the UK pretty soon (finishing uni in the next few months), so I have plenty of ideas, some of them with serious potential, I hope.

    Seriously, MBP123, I doubt you'll get anyone talking about actual potential business ideas on a forum. You're just inviting comments like the ones above. Sorry. That said, psychofreak's has potential :)

    I have an idea that makes $10 just for mailing an envelope.

    Send me $10 and I'll show you how to do it. :)
