Thinh is I have a number of business ideas I would likeprfiles on but once you register you can only download 2 which I did ages ago.

They have a database of BOPs and mini BOPs called COBRA, but obviously you have to pay to gain access to the information.

You can get free BOP's from HSBC when you register for a business information pack there are lots to choose from.

I think i got around 15 different ones

I've also used Cobra and paid for them too

Hi Folks,

A bit of an amateur question here but what exactly are Business Opportunity Profiles?

Thanks,

Bill.

Hi BillT

BOPs are a basic start up guide available for around 300 different business ideas from an Accountability Consultant through to a Yoga & Pilates Instructor. They provide information under the following headings

Are you suited to this type of business?
What formal training do you need?
Who are your customers likely to be?
Who will you be competing against?
What are the key issues affecting the market?
How can you promote this enterprise?
What start up costs can you expect?
What are the legal issues to consider?
Further information & contacts

There are other reports available such as market synopses and Business Information Factsheets which could prove useful with initial research.
