There is probably no shortage of business ideas. Here are 20 from a published list of 999

As a general statement, there’s probably no shortage of business ideas; if someone will buy it, you have a business. The skill is, of course, finding someone to buy it plus all the other skills you need to start and run a business.

Business guru, Seth Godin, ran an alternative MBA programme . As part of the programme, nine participants came up with 111 business ideas each to prove there was no shortage of ideas. If you’ve time, read all 999 of them; if not, here is an edited list of the last 20:
