What is the appropriate way to approach people regarding investing in my business?
I have designed several products with the intent to patent and sell them over the past 3 years, however patents are expensive and at least two of my designs have been recently rolled out by big name companies.
I could apply for provisional patents but they only last a year from date of file and, I will not be able to pay my attorney to file a non-provisional patent within a year.
Should I file provisional patents and pitch the product to companies to buy me out, or simply get capital ASAP and file standard patents?
I have no sentimental connection to nearly all of my products and don't care about my inventions being bought-out.
