Learning More About the Industry
As part of your due diligence on opening a robotic components business, it's a wise move to speak with somebody who is already in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. What's in it for them?
Fortunately, somebody who runs a robotic components business in a location that is not competitive to you will be much more likely to talk with you, after they realize you reside far away from them and won't be stealing their local customers. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. It can take a while to find an entrepreneur who is willing to talk, but it's well worth the effort.
