I am an 18-year old individual, in my first year of university. At the beginning of the university year, I had an idea for a website that I followed up on and have, at this point, created a product that could be finished within a short period of time. The target audience would be students of any kind and I have shown the idea to several students at my campus and their responses were very positive.
As for my concerns: So far I have been the only person doing anything with this project. I have seen everywhere that it is highly recommended to have at least a co-founder and I really feel the need for some outside ideas and some motivation boosts. I have tried looking around my university (so far only people that I actually know) but nobody seems to really 'have the spark'.
Furthermore, the kind of site I am working on, if it is launched, would not generate profit at an early stage but it does have the potential to be highly profitable. Sadly, I do not have very extensive knowledge about the business side or the legal side of things. Should I worry about investments, business partners or any of that now? Do I need to register trademarks for my website's (company's?) name? When do I register my site as a company?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)
