You could invest it with my company. Higher risk, high returns.

You don't specifiy your risk level. You don't specify your business maturity level (start up, growth, mature). You don't specify what lines of business you understand. Hard to give any advice.

Investment

You can invest in financial instruments. I will suggest you to invest with good companies. You can get at least around 10% return.

About business, it is a bit tricky because the market is just too small (total around 4 millions, young and old, including non citizens). Companies here usually have their business income from abroad, and they have their HQ here.

Or, they do export import. BUy from asian countries and sell to Europe/USA.

Or, if you can find a good cook, you can try to open restaurant. However, pick a good location. It may be more expensive, but human traffic there is big.

Hello Alexcraft, shouldn't you be advertising in the classifieds, rather then peddling your business here, after all, you are offering investment, rather than starting a business.

You have a business which is venture capital right? So you are established! I believe the business section to be one of genuine business partner development, for startups!

Rather than an established business offering investment! if one gets away with it, we will have all the finance instutions offering investments on here right! and that's sad :cry:

Someone with $ 500K to spend, asking for advice on how and where to invest? Anything?

Sounds like a big windup.

Well i've got a very good equity to recommend now. There is no way you will lose out now because the share price is very low and it will definitely shoot soon.

And I've got a bridge to sell you, with along with some prime beachfront property in Wyoming.
