I have an idea for a startup -- but I am not a developer, or an MBA. Is there hope for me and if so, how do I overcome my lack?
Brief background: I've spent most of my career as a content creator. I've spent the last few years running the website of a content-based dot com. I have a significant knowledge base in my market and know something about financing beyond an ability to read a balance sheet. Now, I want to develop a concept that would involve content in a database format. However, while I can talk to developers without significant embarrassment and know the difference between an API and PHP, my coding skills are rudimentary (to be generous). And while I think I have a very good idea, I also believe that technology -- and elegant solutions derived from it -- will be key to its success.
Of course, no startup has a single founder and I want to find partners for this project. But as I do my research, I am hard pressed to find examples in which all of the principals didn't have significant tech and/or business credentials. Any guidance, or suggestions as to how I can best overcome my handicaps?
