The latest survey on wealthiest people in Indonesia comes up with a list of businessman from various industries, but the top richest are dominated by oil palm business and coal mining.

Some industries are backing up behind the wealthiest people. They are cigarettes maker, bank and finance, retail, polyesters manufacture and cement industries. According to Forbes, sixteen of the 21 billionaires made their fortunes in coal or palm oil.

Urban areas will grow every year not only phisycally but the urban dweller’s lifestyle. How to find urban business niche?

My previous note highlited that urban lifestyle can be assessed, at least, by their food and beverage and common health risks. In line with that, you’ll note that urban business exists to provide the people’s need.  Take a sample of a gym facility that running in the centre of the city, near office building or the apartments. For the sake of values added, an urban businessman could increase its online visibility, providing support accessories such best running shoes or alternative workout methods such resistance bands.
