    Problem starting business?

    I am 17 and i have been thinking of starting a web design business. The problem is that my friend (also 17) has his own business and he has cornered a huge area into using him. He has got every school, club or organisasion in his grasp in Croydon and the surrounding area (England).

    Is there any point in me even thinking about it?

    You bet.
    No reason you can expand beyond the immediate area. And even setup in direct competition in the local area - offer better prices, better quality product, more options etc. Of course that may strain your friendship with your friend so it may be worth talking with him/her about setting up a partnership rather competing with each other.

    If he/she has the market, they should be very busy! I agree with Myros.. talking to them about a partnership, or working for them.

    If you're passionate about doing something.. find ways to do it better than your competition.
