I am part of a start-up that is going to become massive. We started to look for investors. We are talking millions of dollars. Low and behold, Covid popped up, and the markets crashed last year. Find someone to invest in your idea when their portfolios just got slammed, and the future seems bleak. It turns out, we didn’t raise a single dollar, but we found a group of computer programmers that have agreed to build a minimum viable product for shares in the business.
The bottom line the project is being worked on, and it does not cost anything. If it works out in the end, everybody wins.
Look out of the box; there will be a solution.
