We have a hot new aquarium design (protected by a design patent), as well as a preliminary prototype and label art for the packaging. We`ve formed an LLC, set up for insurance for the product when we`re ready, and have an option for China manufacturing - but are looking into the possibility of domestic manufacturing.
What we need now is funding to get our product to market; we`ve already garnered some retail interest and are going after some of the larger retailers, but would need to be able to supply them with the product to be able to close the deal.
Where can we find a U.S. manufacturer for our design (it`s a round bowl with plastic or Croslite-type material appendages) and where can we find funding for manufacturing our product and bringing it to the marketplace?
Thank you for any information or assistance.
