Yes, this also depends on product itself. If it is niche numero uno product and customers are thirsty for this unique product, yes aspire global. If it is jsut n+1 product, do not aspire global.

Good point: startups have limited resources so it is important to apply critical analysis when deciding where to allocate them.  The key is to be open-minded about all opportunities worldwide: the initial investment is higher in a remote location but the ROI might be better.  These are the tough decisions startup execs have to make.
