I think that there are plenty of "undiscovered" and potential markets here in Sweden. One thing I've been thinking about myself is to start some sort of a café or something, with classic rock as a theme, and then decorate it in a cool way. And have that really old feel, not stereo's and stuff, but a jukebox and things like that. Another thing that I know that people can make money on is by buying a lot of old records or just about anything abroad, in USA for example and then start a shop here and sell the stuff to a much higher price 8) I also know others that make a lot of money on internet auctions, they find rare stuff cheap somewhere and sell it on internet auctions to a higher price.

Mark, are you familiar with eddie rockets?

i think one of them would do quite well in Sweden. I was going to suggest you look at their website as they have franchise offers, but they seem to be having problems paying their hosting bill (www.eddierockets.ie/)

Slightly off the topic, but speaking of shops/businesses...

I'd love to open a floatation centre. With the number of people off sick with stress -related illnesses, I think there'd be a huge market for it. I mean, where I work, our company (an IT office) actually has a contract with a massage company...They've got their own purpose-built room, and are here every day!
Just wish I had the money for a space with some floatation tank rooms...

Have a look at: http://www.floatworks.com/reception.htm

If you're ever in London, I'd STRONGLY recommend going for a float!

If I could get the backing, i'd be quite excited by the following three letters...K.F.C.

Otherwise I may take inspiaration from a venue i used to frequent in Manchester: 'The F.A.B Cafe'. It's a science fiction theme bar, with an inspired menu (probably with students in mind)

Jacket potatoes - various fillings (sausages etc.)
Beans/macaroni on toast
Filled giant yorksires
There's a bloody great pheasant in my back garden attacking a magpie
Vesta curries/ chow mein

All very seventies comfort food (except that darn pheasant)...salivates at memory.

Retail in general has to be a potentially massive market in Sweden !

Sweden has not really learnt to shop big time, as far as I can see, and we really need to open our wallets more ..

Spend for Sweden !

Coffee shop idea's a good one, Mark Boy, I'd check it out some more !

The business plan that I had was a 1 of a kind here in Stockholm, in my research NO other businesses are similiar. Until I decide to stay or to leave Stockholm obviously I am not going to waste my money!

Swedens loss!

I always eat at pizza hut when im in Stockholm. Now there's another potential big market here, and that is to start restaurants that only make food that is pretty healthy, and disguise it in a fast food type of way. I think a chain like that would do really well here.
