From the December 2002 issue of Entrepreneur

Predicting the future is challenging in the best of times. In times like these, when it seems like the only certainty is uncertainty, it's even tougher. But we didn't let that stop us. Based on our research, investigation and, of course, our gut (every entrepreneur knows how important that is), we've pinpointed the industries, opportunities, trends and markets we believe have the best potential for next year and beyond. Take a close look, and one thing's for certain: Your business can't help but benefit.
