Best field for tech entrepeneuship.

What science related field do you think is the field with the most high-quality opportunities for entrepreneurship that could turn into huge companies? Do you think it is computer science, biotechnology, nanotechnology, materials engineering, etc?

Also, if someone wanted to eventually own some kind of consultancy or something, would you recommend some kind of engineering degree over a theoretical degree; like mechanical engineering over physics? Would it be better to have a BS and MS in [whatever] Engineering, or better to have a BS in Physics and then specialize with a MS in [whatever] Engineering?

You can't narrow it down and say you'll be better off doing electrical engineering or materials engineering if you want to become an entrepreneur. Albeit, it is probably wiser to choose something engineering/computer-science related if you're looking to break into that industry.

Really, all you need is the idea, drive, and passion for what you're trying to accomplish. That's really it. Oh, and maybe the venture funding afterwards. So, you gotta be business savvy too :)
