Totally you could use reseller account on shared hosting and then farm out VPS's and dedi servers to a white label provider, or you could get a dedi server and do the VPS's yourself, depends what your offering.
Yes anyone need to know what you want to offer and get out of your business before deciding what solutions to use.
But starting out you risk a lot by going direct to a dedicated server, unless you know what you are doing and have the money to subsidise your business.
best option is to get a reseller plan and build up a strong clientbase and reputation and then only when you have enough funds to cover at least 3 times the cost of a VPS setup should you consider moving to a VPS and even then if you are unsure on how a VPS runs then opt for a managed VPS
