Learning More About the Industry
Once you've finished assessing the competion, you really ought to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a motion picture projection services business in a location that is not competitive to you will be much more likely to talk with you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. If you are persistent, you can find a business mentor who is willing to help you out.

Should You Buy or Start a Motion Picture Projection Services Business?
Tough decisions are what business ownership is all about. And one of the first decisions you'll have to make is whether to start a business from scratch or buy an existing motion picture projection services business.
Despite the appeal of a new business launch, the scales consistently tip in favor of buying a proven business enterprise. From a financial perspective, you'll receive more income sooner in a business purchase than you will in a startup.
Depending on your business goals, you may have no choice but to start a motion picture projection services business from scratch. But whenever possible, we recommend carefully surveying the business-for-sale marketplace before committing to a startup approach.
