I have a business idea that is (in my opinion, of course) a foolproof and unique twist on an existing concept that already works extremely well.
The only problem is that due to its complexity and technical requirements I would have to outsource for professional programming expertise which would cost in the figures of $2K-3K, by my estimates. With a fair bit of advertising (another $1K, minimum), I expect the project to go into significant profit within 2-3 months.
Some questions I have.
Does anyone here have experience with attracting investors and raising funds? Where and how did you do it?
How do you protect a business idea from being copied/stolen when looking for investors?
What sort of a return do potential investors expect and in what time frame?
That's all for now, might have more questions soon
