I guess I'm wondering to what degree the field mentioned by the original poster is potentially benefiting from very cheap space.
Most businesses fail within 2 years, due to a flawed model, or under capitalization.

When you start any business you should have sufficient cash reserves that you can run the business with ZERO income for 2 years ..

For the model I presented to be safe , you should start that project with half a million dollars in the bank CASH not credit

and you just may survive long enough to get to a positive cash flow.

Most businesses fail because they finance the start up and expect a positive cash flow on opening .. this really does not happen ..

.. So if there is someone with half a million sitting around , and they don't mind waiting a decade to get it back.. I'm ready to start tomorrow.
