Have you tried going to the bank with your business plan? It sounds like you have all of your ducks in a row but are just looking for a little bit more funding. If you can convince them you will be a good investment than they would be happy to give you the money. Another place you may want to try is the small business administration.
I wish I could afford to help you and wish you the best of luck.

I'm hoping I didn't say anything that sounds sketchy. I don't know what else to say to validate this post and let people know it's a real business, with corporations and business people involved.
I'm not good at research and I'm very aware that the chances of me finding funding through this are extremely RARE, but I'm trying everything I can.
thanks for your response! i appreciate the info!
It's actually the amount of things I need to get done.
Of course, the more money I have, the more I can do with it, but I don't want to ask too much and be left out of possibilities. I need to get the patent research and a few other things rolling asap, that's why I'm not really sure what to ask. IT may work for some, but I want to find the person who will say yES.
I'll shoot you an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you again
PS: i dont know whats wrong with the writing font.
From our experience working with early stage entities, we've determined that:
1. There are a number of ways to bring capital into a company (upwards of 40).
2 One of the three keys to success when seeking early capital is to choose the "right" path (Capital Strategy) for you and your business.
3. It will probably take more than $30-$40K to get to the point where a $5 million investment is practical for both sides. [The valuation will be an important factor]
4. It's most probable that capital support for the stage of your business will come from your extended network.
Good luck with your quest. If you want to discuss your specific situation, feel free to drop me a PM or contact me directly.
