Whats the best way to find a business partner?
Hi I am an inventor but for medical reasons I am unable to handle searching for and convincing a prospective customer to sign a nda, they always push for information I cant give them without giving them critical details.
I have no money at present so cant join expensive partner websites and cant get patents, im stumped.
I know my stuff is good in last year 2 of my concepts have been used, I still have 8 blueprints and 20 concepts but I can almost feel time running out.
Ive tried gumtree offering 50% partnership my ideas their sales skills or they could pay for a salesman no luck.
Craigslist might actually be a good route to try. I've found many a good deal and relationship through CL. Be clear in your description of what you want. Make sure you're willing to give generously as they will be when they're doing the work.
1. Only choose people you can trust. Partnerships get risky and fuzzy at times so it's nice to have someone you feel can be an asset when that happens.
2. Make sure the people you're considering have a good work ethic.
It's important you feel the workload is even or it could lead to future resentment.
3. Define responsibilities very clearly and have them written out.
4. Make sure they are qualified. Have they done that work before? If not, have they don't something VERY similar? If not, you need to find someone else, or you're wasting yours and there time.
5. Make sure agreements are written down and very clear.
That's it, good luck!
