You've probably heard this before, but I came up with the idea for great product and I developed it. I measured the demand for it personally, by demonstrating it to the target audience and got a fantastic response. The idea is a custom IT solution offered as an SaaS. Competition is relatively low.
I am currently a one person company (LLC). I am trying to get this business off the ground by starting to sell the product and generate some revenue. I have very limited business experience to make the company grow on the scale that I believe it can, so I thought to partner with an investor/ business partner to help me solve the following problems and make the company grow:
- Patents, copyright, attorney expenses
- Advertising - Internet and other
- Sales Management - requires a team of sales associates to go and sell the product at different conferences
What I do:
- Manage the technology / intellectual side of things, development, improvements, support, 'coding' and delivery of the service
Is this a realistic set up? More importantly, how do start ups find investors/partners?
