I'm inspired to post about this because some friends in the industry and me are approached by people who have brilliant ideas for tools, software, manufacturing but no money to build the website, create the brand, hire the QA testing, etc.
They reach out in the hopes that one of us will work for free or the promise of a stake in the profits later. I never do these because I know too many people, and myself, who agreed to these promises and were badly burned.
But, I will try to recommend solutions, especially when approached by someone who seems sincere, if I know of any.
Where do people get funding for their ideas?
Do you work for free sometimes?
How do you know when you are being fooled by false promises?
I LOVE this. Great example of a video that gets the message out there to get funding.
