I had this question in my mind long ago. Now I'm daring to ask that. ;-) What I have learnt from current trend is that, "Internet or e-commerce is the only field for the software start-ups to get clicked or to get good revenue."
We - me and two friends of mine - are developing a software for the industry for the standalone purpose. The development is half way through. But we are very much worried about its future. Because if we consider the current top start-up companies, almost all are into internet based product development. Is it that much necessary to have an internet or e-commerce product for a start-ups? Is our understanding correct on current trend on start-ups?
I meant we are developing a desktop application. But current trend of start-up companies seems to be products related to e-commerce/internet. So is it products related to e-commerce are the only source of revenue for start-ups? Is it a bad idea to build a desktop application?
