A Startup Company in Multiple Industries?
Parag Sontakke
We have started a company and we are focusing on 5 fields simultaneously viz. software, telecom, construction and training and electrical contracts (local work).
The reason why we are concentrating on all these fields at the same time is we are a very small company and need sources of revenue generation. We will focus on a single field after say 2 years or generating enough revenue.
Is this a good strategy? Or should we concentrate on a single industry or field only right from the beginning?
