If you had ?5,000 to spend on an internet venture, what would you do?

Bear in mind all promotion/advertising, hosting, setup fees etc.

I'm looking for serious ideas, preferably something that is relatively new/hasn't been tried before, i.e. no hosting, search engines, etc.

Thanks, but I was looking for serious replies. I realise all the risks in starting a new business, and that 2 out of 3 new business fail in their first year of operation.

?5000? Small hosting company most probably.

If we all knew the answer that question, I'm sure we'd be doing it ourselves. New? Not done before? Well I'm afraid you're gonna have to work on that one by urself, buddy.

@Ayria: I am asking internet users!

@Axel: I realise that thought input is required, hence the research. Some people have ideas but no capital.

@Max: Hosting? Did you read my post?

Ask Internet Users what they would want (Service wise) from the Internet.

Once you have a few suggestions that are plausable put out another survey asking how much they would pay for it?

At the end of the day you need a service people want and will pay money for.

No problem, like I said, I think local sponorship is the way forward to you. I can't really see myself benefitting from it, I want something I have an interest in.

Don't go into something you don't know about.

Try doing research. There is no way to make quick money. I recommend you take the 5k and dump it into low risk long term stocks.

Maybe jump on those virtual stock market games where you play stocks with fake money and play it for a few month, get the feel of it and learn, then use real money in the stock market.
