I`m a college kid taking a break from school for financial reasons. I`m starting a multimedia company. I`m torn between trying to find a job in the industry and learning the ropes first or just going for it on my own. I know that my ultimate goal is to own my own game studio, the only problem with most game studios are that they want to own your ideas outright while you work for them. So my question is this:
Is it better to gain some experience in the industry first? I have been reading and learning on my own but I have no industry experience.
Do I realistically have any chance of starting a business without working for someone else in the same industry first?
