I'm currently with one of Vista's portfolio companies and I'm thinking about starting my own consulting firm. Initially, I'd need to lean on current clients for revenue. While there are no non-compete issues or IP conflicts, I'm uneasy about pitching this concept to my company since Vista owns a majority. One of the current growth strategies is to grow through partners to avoid building a huge professional services team.
Anyone out there with experience in doing something similar? Appreciate any input/advice!
