Starting a company with low funds is very dangerous, you need to make sure you can get to a point where you make more moeny than you pay out to employees, with whatever you do such as flower running and reviving or something like that doing those 2 together often each day will be something you'd need to do... money in should always exceed money out or else you'll go bank rupt... breaking even is fine i suppose but you need to make sure you have some method to make sure employees can be paid everyday and that it wont drain your pockets.

companies are just a money sink for all companies except some cruiseliners, TV networks and oil rigs because these 3 are the only ones that generate any income. sweet shop can generate revenue but not through daily income... but anyways figure out how to have your own steady income before you dig yourself into a grave trying to start a company and failing at it because you run out of money. I've ran out of money before ranking a company it's not fun i had to restart from near nothing and work my way back up i had twice as much as you did and tried to rank up a cruiseliner and failed had to sell the cruiseline itself for like 100m and lost 700 in total all to paying employees.

Too many chiefs not enough Indians as they say. I really wish ched would limit the number of companies allowed period. People will still buy/sell/trade companies and they'll never get way overpriced simply because after a point they're not worth buying.

i would wait until you have more income and spendingmoney. in addition it would really help if you had the business educations and the stock benefits for more income and free advertising, both of which are essential for profit

The only companies worth starting to try to make a profit from at TV Networks and Oil Rigs. Sports teams and sweetshops are fine if you can buy one at 5*... but with 400mil you wont.

Your 400mil may seem like a lot, but I'd worry about getting 2bil in the bank before you even worry about a company.

can I give you some advice. to be honest all the comments above disregard. they don't really know what they are talking about. the guy that said he lost nearly everything. he was unlucky. (started too high) got gready perhaps. the thing is. I own a company had it for a long time. I bought it for less then what it was worth. bought it at 2 stars. it is now 5 stars. (yes it gave me some headaches) I made money the whole way thru. maybe when it was 2star I didn't had to put a bit of money in. when it got 2 3 stats I was making more. and every now and then I advertised(not heaps by the way) I don't advertise anymore.
and yes I make a profit. also. to point out. my staff are inactive. (have been for along time) so I got 1-5 fresh faces (ontop of inactives) and I still levelled. I pay my staff $1 each as the don't play. but you know what. even when I paid them I was making money(profit) and now. not only do I make money everyday from sales. I make money from my specials.
and lastly 400million is enough to start a company. you don't need to buy a zoo, cruise , tv , or rig, to make money.
hears what I say. 1 don't spend the whole 400m you will need some to upgrade etc. 2. don't nessisarilly buy new you can buy a used company for cheaper find a good deal. 3. research . look what the certain company is 1.capible and 2. what the star level gets so you understand what your in for. 3. patients it takes a long time to rank it. and 4. figure out what will work for you. and if it is better to own your business. or work somewhere else. in a company or a torn starter job. and finally good luck

This is really really really good advice if you want to rank a company over the next 2000 days
Everyone else's advice was ranking a company in 200-365 days. I've ranked 6 companies from 1 to 5 stars in my torn life over the last 2000 days, have ran and owned around 50 companies in total a few of those bought at 3/4 star and ranked to 5 (probably around 3 companies bought at less than 5 higher than 1 star)... during this time you've ranked 1 company. I prefer the 1 year or less method to rank over the 5 year one, so don't say everyone in this thread don't know anything.

I made a sweet shop with only 200m budget o.o and made 15x profit. I am certain i only had that much cuz i had to sell my castle to make the sweetshop. You could try the sweet shop path but lots of people are doing it now so its a bit harder.
