"The word \"investment\" sounds tempting to many people. It may the best way to spend money when return of investment is considered. However, investment may turn into the worst way of spending money if not planned wisely. In order to have a good plan, a thorough research is required. In this project, I will try to guide investors by providing them with a potential profitable venues in certain places. I will compare two or more different cities in terms of popular venues located in each city. I think it is safe to assume certain kind of venues located close to each other effect each others business positively. For example, a pharmacy close to a hospital will do better business compared to a pharmacy far away from any hospital. This is kind of an obvious observation. By using Foursquare location data, I will try to find similar patterns that are not so obvious."

"I will be using Foursquare location data to find what kind of venues are located close to each other or far way from each other. Grouping venues in clustes might give insight to understand what kind of venues are located close to each other. For example, there might be a coffee shop close to each bakery. Minimum distance between same kind of venues should also be taken into account. For example, it is probably not a good idea to open a coffee shop close to an existing coffee shop. All these insights and even more will be more visible after analyzing data and seeing the results."
