Investors

How do you find an investor for a project without giving them too much information so that your idea can be stolen? It's hard to get someone to sign a NDA before you tell them what you have in mind.

A friend and I have (I swear) a very sure way to make hundreds of millions very quickly. We need 1.8 million to make it happen fast(3 months) and about 1.2 to make it happen in 6 months.

$20 to 40 million 3 months after the 1.8 mil. would be committed. Then double that next year. The investor would get 40%. That is a little low, but the return would be in 3 months, so that's the trade off.

Everything is ready to go on our end to get started. We just need to partner up with an investor.

How do you do this? I don't know.

I just know if someone wants to listen for 5 min. I can show them after they sign an NDA.

This is no scam or joke. I'd love to find an investor from La. to do this project. It involves sports, mainly football. It will be high profile and well known world wide.

We are 100% confident in success.

If you're not an investor and have advice (can't wait for the jackass advice, too) on how to get in front of someone looking to invest, let me know your contact info. Thank you.

No you don't.


You are smoking crack if you think someone is gonna give you 1 million plus for 40% of a company that is an idea.

Banks tend to invest if they think your idea will fly. I guess it won't fly.

Man funny you should post this. I just got an email from a guy in Nigeria with tons of money. I could give you his email. He's like an African prince or something. Really awesome guy.

re: Investors
You are trying to run before you can crawl, much less walk.

Get your patents and things on paper.

And start a kickstarter to get something tangible rolling.

No one savy to have 7 figures to throw around on investments will give you a dime without at least some form of proof of concept.

And indications of consumer demand from the kickstarter won't hurt.

re: Investors
If you have an idea, formulate a business plan and pitch it to venture capitalists and local banks. Banks most likely won't take a stab at it because they might be risk-averse but you never know

re: Investors
We've been working on it for 6 years. Just tweeking here and there for the last 3. It's frustrating to know you have the golden ticket and no way to cash it in.

I guess I can tell you that it is the next level of fantasy football. All fantasy, but football is the bell cow.

Fantasy football is no joke. 40 million players this year. We found the next progression that everybody who plays now would welcome.

That's about all I can put out there about it.

But, if you believe in the power of FF, then you know it's a safe investment.

How exactly do you need 1.8 million dollars to start a fantasy football site?

Are you getting a fricking super bowl ad?

FF?

WTF?

I assumed all of the money was because you needed to produce physical prototypes.

FF is electronic, and even running everything in house should cost a quarter that to get the ball rolling.....

Seriously, you seem to be trying to come out of the gate at the national scale...and it doesn't work like that.
