Got the idea and business plan pretty much done as much as I can, this can change again tomorrow and I don't need to spend any more time on this now!

I need a product, either a web or app, preferably a app product and I have no funds at the moment, I'm crowdfunding in lots of places but with no luck, emailing and contacting every investor I can find but still nothing! ( In emails I never tell the hole idea and business plan, it's that wrong? new to this and I'm afraid someone will steal it like uber did to postmates, just found out today when I got an add on youtube with uber delivering food)

What do I do now?

I learned the basics of making a website but when it comes to what I need the website to do It will take me months to learn and I have a job as well at the moment and I can't ....

(P.S. The idea it's pretty good, futuristic and somewhat complicated)

Where to find funds or people who would work for future dividents?

Meaning for free at the moment?

You won't. Not anyone good, anyway.


Ideas are easy, common, and usually worthless. Most any developer worth their salt is inundated with offers to build someone else's system for a percentage of the results.


If you lack the business acumen to find investors or investors are uninterested, it's not worth a dev's time. Not when there are other companies who want the same thing but have investor cash in hand. Why should a dev gamble their precious time to make someone else rich?

Thank Joe for the advice.

And Mr Richard, I'm sorry but nobody it's making me rich, I said someone to work for dividends meaning he will own a part of the company and I get paid he gets paid as well.

And for tech co-founder it might take some time because you have to know someone before you *marry them* and I am a tech'ish founder, I know how to build a web page and stuff, learned that in the last week, but I need someone who really knows what he is doing and not fool around.

I'm not giving up, somehow I will get something done!

I'm always intrigued by comments like "If you lack the business acumen to find investors or investors are uninterested, it's not worth a dev's time." because they assume that all developers want to be employees, not founders. If you're a co-founder it's not a matter of making someone else rich - it's about participating in mutual success.


One major challenge for a founding team is building and validating enough of a business model to warrant investment. This often includes some form of bootstrapping. It's also important to recognize that some perfectly good, perfectly profitable business models will never be investable.


So - business people and developers, please take some time to consider what you want to put in and what you want to take out and make sure you have a common, documented agreement about how all of that will work.

The only people you can get to work for free, is those that don’t need the money.,everyone else needs to pay rent, and buy food. The problem your facing is how can you convince those who don’t need to work it is worth spending time on your project, rather than anything else they could be doing with their time?

You might occasionally find someone who believes in your project enough, but the odds are that you won’t.
