Do exactly what those companies making billboards did. First you go and work for a company, learn everything about manufacturing the item, steal the technology , and the leave and start your own business on the other side of town.

Manufacturing is the easy part. Anyone with a serious background in electronic design can do an indoor LED billboard. For outdoor, you additionally need enclosure design and cooling. That can be contracted out however if you don't have the skills yourself. It will take a design team a while, but it is not particularly challenging as far as designs go.

The real problem is sales. You are talking about an incredibly competitive market, and you need a large network of contacts. To start, I would simply find a Chinese partner, source the billboards from him, and get your legs involved in selling. All of the value in that industry is the relationships you have to advertisers. Anyone can make the electronics. Try to sell a few sq. meters first and see how it goes.

Yes, what Mono says ^^^ is very true.
Also add that the industry is ridden with corruption worldwide, and the circumvention of local planning rules by underhanded practices.
But the main issue for me is the hijacking of pubic spaces to be filled with ugly urgings to buy more useless crap.
I am old fashioned enough to believe the whole public sphere, including "visual amenity", should not be sold to the highest bidder.
