Hello! I read a lot of topics on this subject, but, nevertheless, after the analysis of the read remains a bad fuzzy feeling in my head and heart. Perhaps because of the abundance of contrary opinions, and experiences, perhaps because of the range of dates of publications, and as a consequence and relevance of information.



So please people who know how to do, to clarify some questions:

1. Where, after all, is really to find an investor for a new project
2. What investments need to be dropped immediately, that would not fall into the trap
3. How not to lose the project altogether

And of course we would like to know about the disclosure to investors: i.e., what information, in what form, etc.

Actually after reading some of the topics have the impression that without special teams, which is sharpened to an investment at all is necessary. Ie, does the standard dependence: that would get a lot of money, have a lot to invest. However, what does budding startups that are technically savvy, but far enough from all the legal and economic nuances of investment... such startups have a great desire, great potential, great idea, but no money to hire a competent lawyer and an economist to undertake the project through instances of potential investors.

On the one hand, the startups, their great desire, great potential, great idea, but on the other hand the person with the money he earned himself and not willing to pay for "we will conquer the world". If an aspiring startups to give all the nuances of a great idea, to defend your project and anato to respond to criticism and questions?

If you are confident in your project and you have some working prototype you can pass in the following ways:
1) Find a business incubator in their city. To contact any of the managers. To tell you the idea of your project. You from Moscow, this is not a problem.
2) to Make a presentation of your projector to Business Lynch projects. So to prove to potential investors that your project is viable.
3) If previous step quest end well, you will likely be offered a office for your team for pennies or modify the project to work (which you can already monetize) to attract investment in development.
\r
With the staff of business incubators can be as open as possible. They don't expect for your project. And in dealing with investor focus is already on your intuition.
\r
PS
You have the same not-for-profit is not an opensource project I hope.

+1 for the business incubator. Now he bring the project to a working prototype,
\r
the second stage is the organization of a "home" hosting, I think the money 5 thousand on the old server.
having a live prototype can already "bullshit" to potential investors.
I have one third stump 512 MB (waiting for a long time its a dump) is used for the database, a second WEB,
of course the "home hosting" a lot of customers do not serve...
But: you can CONVINCE INVESTORS YOUR INDEPENDENCE (that alone can bring the project to the finish line)
\r
third step: search for business partners or shares or loan
\r
PS he is looking for investors.
PPS Google at one time wanted to sell a million dollars in Yahoo, but they felt that finding the money will bring. So where is Google and where Yaho?

As many repeatedly said, in order to attract investors for the project, it needs to be more than idea — otherwise it's almost not real. However, this should not be too hard to fear what You will be deceived and will leave without a business — it's not done often, because everyone has their own competence, and your business most likely, your they just don't want to do this instead of You.

One of the ways of attracting investment which is not yet sounded, especially convenient when working with foreign investors, are the special "investment boutiques" who act as intermediaries. They work on a something resembling a realtor: in case of successful attraction take a small percentage. In addition, they are able to do if not themselves, then at least explain how you need to prepare documentation, plan, investment Memorandum and other papers in order to liked to the investor.
To them, however, little sense to apply for small volumes of investment — they are not very interested. It is also necessary to consider that they work more with investment funds, not private investors, and these relationships have their own specifics. However, a link to one of them (Beford Investments) I threw, see if You can help.
