Business Term Definition - Business Opportunity

A business opportunity is defined as being an investment made into a potentially profitable venture that is billed as an all-inclusive package. Many states regulate business opportunities, with each state listing different requirements for a legitimate business opportunity to meet, such as:

  • A business opportunity enables a buyer to start a business by selling or leasing them a product, service or equipment;

  • The fee paid to begin the business opportunity must exceed $500;

  • The seller guarantees a higher selling price for the product or service than the buyer paid, so as to ensure demand; and

  • The seller will buy back any unused product from the buyer if there is no opportunity to sell the product to the end consumer.
