This is my first question on here, so please excuse me if I haven't got used to any cultural norms this stack site has.
I have an idea, a great idea. An idea that I truly believe, with maybe a little naivity, that could revolutionise a multi-billion pound industry. It has potential to succeed on it's own, and if successful would likely field large take over bids from established industry players to buy the technology. It is something that is a achievable, conceptually simple for consumers, greatly needed and does not currently exist.
But there are, as with everything, a few hitches.
- I don't have any money
- I don't quite have the skills to create the technology. I understand the principles deeply, but I would at present struggle with implementation
- I don't currently have the time needed to get it off the ground quick enough to avoid someone else thinking of it. I work full time to support a family, and with no savings I can't dive into the project without financial backing.
What, if any, do I have as options? Are their people I can speak to? I really think if I speak to the right people, this idea could really take off in a huge way, and make me and at least a few other people a lot of money.
And also, how best do I go about talking to potential investors/collaborators/partners whilst minimising risk of being Zuckerberged?
