I have an innovative idea that I want to put onto the market, but I still have to develop the idea into a product. I know a few companies that have the knowledge I am looking for. What is the best option to handle this?
- Should I give them a share of the profit, or should I hire them? (I expect hiring will be very expensive)
- What terms should be in the contract of the collaboration?
- Is there any free software available that supports both knowledge- and document sharing? (like Microsoft SharePoint)
