I would suggest investigating various fields from the business perspective not the "I would love to" perspective. Figure out the viable options for your location and then work in that field for a while before investing money in your own company.
Identifying a field where you can be successful is going to be a challenge. Growth fields are predominately service oriented, such as health care, food service and IT.
If you look at each of these fields you find that there is a high failure rate for new restaurants. A franchise could work, depending on the type and your location. But do you want to run a restaurant?
Do you have the knowledge and experience for IT? Also a lot of companies hire their own IT people. If you have new ideas for apps?
Health care or health care support type businesses have a high growth potential. Providing home care supplies such as hospital beds, oxygen etc are in demand and will only continue to grow.
What field is your degree in? If it's not business then it would benefit you to take some business classes. Check out your local business community resources. Attend some small business training sessions and local support meetings.
You have a wonderful opportunity with the support that you will have from your dad so it's worth spending the time and doing the research.
