How to start your own cell phone company?
I am a engineer looking to start my own phone company that will one day become a multi electronic company and due to todays economy i would like to start with smart phones. I know half of the people that may answer will be not what i want so if you can answer:
1.How do i get started.
2.Are there companies to make my phone once i create it or do I have to start my own factory.
3.How do I advertise it.
4.How do i get Verizon,sprint.etc.... to put my phones in their stores.
If anyone has any clue on how to start a business like that it would be very appreciated.
Like any business you really need to prepare a business plan to outline all these things. Market research will help address a lot of these issues. In US the likes of SCORE and SBA can provide free business advice and help.
Perhaps you should consider a partnership, as you state you are an engineer, maybe you need someone more focused on business and negotiations rather than the technology.
