So I was hoping to get some advice from this wonderful community.
I have been working on starting a business and, at the present, all of the in tangible facets of the process have been prepared. I've written a business plan (I revise it at least once a month), I've created a projected budget, I've even collected market research on how people in general will receive this new idea. However, I pride myself in my self-effacing. This accurate depiction of what I can do and what I cannot has left me with two problems.
One problem is that I need somewhere between $500k and $1mil to start this operation and I have no idea as to how to get in contact with anyone (or group) that is capable of fulfilling this investment need.
The second problem, which actually makes the first one more difficult, is that this will be my first business and as much as I have researched, read, and talked to knowledgeable individuals; I know that in order to give my idea the greatest chance of succeeding, I need to find a partner who has real world experience and can help fill any voids that may be impossible for me to foresee.
I am coming to you fine individuals to get some input on what you think you would do to get this intangible dream transitioned to a functioning, fruitful, and properly funded startup.
What do you think?
