I am a senior undergraduate, a former intern of a web application startup and now working as a freelancer. After an internship of a few months, I have gained some experience about how things work at a startup. After leaving the job, I wanted to learn about machine learning and find an internship or any other job in that industry.
However, I have received advice from a couple of my connections who have been working in high roles in big companies that I should go towards entrepreneurship and start my own company. I am looking forward to join online meetups of local startups but since it's online there is very little engagement except chat although I may be able to meet someone personally to get advice from them, but I am not sure what questions I would be asking them. I searched through stack-exchange and found this answer and this answer but they are quite general and not related to Machine Learning and are pretty old (there's great advice in them though).
I have very limited time to decide which path to follow but as mentioned my interest is towards my own business. I would appreciate if anyone could guide me how to start my journey.
