    Hello red:

    Your family would be first. Second would be "angels". They're people who have been successful in the industry you are trying to break into. Go see some of them. Take your business plan with you.

    What?? You don't have a business plan?? THAT is your first step, before "who".

    And be sure you have a patient on your invention, since without that it can be easily stolen

    The idea may be able to pay for itself but be sure you know who will carry your idea and who your market is and what your market specifically want before manufacturing it. Do not forget to file a patent no later than 1 year after you disclose your idea to anyone or risk legally losing it if it has not already been produced or stolen by someone else. You must be financially ready to file a patent, which can run you into the thousands, so do not disclose it until you have all or at least a good portion of the money to do this. Research or get your idea thoroughly researched before formally disclosing it to someone with your representative/witness or lawyer present. I am not a lawyer so check with your lawyer before taking or acting on anyone's advice.
