    Hello
    So in my country there is a program to support young people,basically they give you a loan up to 100k $ to start a small buisness
    and i was wondering if you guys have any good ideas (i am not searching for anything online )
    i know what works here mostly : get a loan to buy cars or bus and rent them for companies ,but they stopped giving them
    so i am looking for new ideas
    please don't be sarcastic if you don't want to help it's ok but keep it to your self

    Why don't you share the city/country so people can get an idea of the demographics and perhaps give you some thoughts centric to your region.

    Yeah, pretty hard to give advice without knowing what country you are in.
    Also, what skills/expertise do you have?
    It also seems unlikely they would just give out $100k grants to anyone, what are the qualifications?

    They can give you anything you want as long as you have a diplomat from university (they don't give you cash money,you give them the bills of the equipments and they give pay for it)
    the places i can start my project in are the capital of my country (north africa)or another city with a looooooooot of oil/gas companies
    i don't have any expertise (that's why most people go with renting cars/bus/and construction machines )

    In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.

    So, open up a funeral home. As long as you don't mess up too bad, your business could be in your family for generations.

    In this country you go to college and come out -$100k before you even try to start a business. Kudos to your country. Haha.

    That is a great program for sure. Give us some details on where you live and what you're in to.

    BTW, you're lucky. In this country you go to college and come out -$100k before you even try to start a business. Kudos to your country. Haha.

    They're handing out $100k like it's going out of fashion in North Africa it seems. But okay, let's accept that.

    The truth is that you are better positioned than any of us to come up with a business idea, you mentioned there's a lot of oil/gas industry, speak to the workers/managers and find out what their daily problems are, then offer a solution to those problems for a price, whether that's through software or real world goods. Simplified, successful businesses effectively offer solutions to peoples' problems effectively.

    For example, suppose there's problems getting hold of a certain product that people need/love, set up a better supply chain and offer that product locally and conveniently. The workers need food at their workplaces? Supply them with it. The companies need better payroll/clocking in systems, offer them.

    yeah,i know people that work in oil factories and i was planning to ask them what are you suggesting, i've been in one too before,since i can only work in oil industry with my diplomat ,for the food it is already covered by big companies they provide them with everything ready ,ican't even describe it,it is like they live in a 5 stars hotel
    anyway the only buisnes i can do with them is rent them the equipments

    Why so cagey on your location?

    Also you might want to change the location in your Freelancer profile, Greensboro isn't in the UK

    you are right,but like i said there is a good chance for not paying the loan back (it is not from a bank )

    it's all depend. where do you live, where do you want to earn money (your city, region, country). Firstly you need to do a very clearly reseach of your market. Than you can start thinking
