Fortune Hunters Online Business Trends

Fortune Hunters Online Business Trends

Episode 2 of CBC's exciting new series on business trends looks at the resurgence of online money-making. After the ’90s dot-com bubble burst, the web was a dangerous place to invest. But online business is on the rise again, inspiring thousands of inventive entrepreneurs. But just how easy is it to find a fortune on the web? As people all over the world use the internet more and more, the opportunities for e-business are huge, and Fortune Hunters has scoured the country for savvy entrepreneurs. In Montreal, Marisa Ramonda's eco-handbags.ca is an online retail outlet that sells purses and bags made of recycled materials. In Vancouver, David Verlee and his partners are using the internet to sell socks like a magazine subscription — a new pair arrives every month. And in Toronto, Ali and Alex de Bold are the fortune hunters in the hottest part of the this trend: social networking.
