There's a company I've had experience with that basically gives you a free guide, showing you the steps to getting the funds you need. It's crazy, but there's a lot of things a lot of us don't think about when applying for loans or grants. There's a lot of potential money to get though if you play your cards right. The way this site does it is simple and really helpful. I'd encourage you to check it out: getbusinessfundingforfree.com. Good luck!
I was told of a service that is 100% free, and they help you get a loan for up to $50,000 and grants of up to $250,000. They basically show you what it takes to get the funding you need. There are a lot of things you need in place you might not think about. Check it out: getbusinessfundingforfree.com. I went through the steps myself in no time, and I'd highly suggest it. Good luck!
Getting others who have the same vision is tough. It seems that with a little success, others are more likely to want to join and be committed. It's sad, but that's just the way it is. As mentioned above, I'd go with trying to start on your own with what you can and grow from there.
