    you can easily build a working prototype in a few hours nowadays without knowing anything

    if you can't do this basic level of work then you are just another ideas guy and can go f*** off

  • I'm not sure what your idea is, but I've had an app/platform idea for a few months now too. I literally just submitted the patent for it last night. Fingers crossed I get it approved

    My advice for you without knowing your situation is that you should try to get whatever protections for the idea you possibly can right now. Try trademarking the name if you have one, see if you can patent the idea, etc.

    If you can't protect it for some reason (such as the protected ideas being too general/already in use), just understand that you're not as safe when you walk into a meeting with someone about the idea.

    I felt like I NEEDED to get a patent because I know I can't build the platform myself for a multitude of reasons (namely can't code), and I know I'm gonna have to set up a meeting with my old boss from the industry who can take me further with her knowledge & connections. But I'd never trust her with my idea if it wasn't protected by a patent

    just some general battle-tested advice i've learned over the years living in silicon valley

    no one gives a s*** about your idea and no one will steal it

    those who think their idea is the magic silver bullet to solve the world's problems don't realize that no one cares and are busy with their own lives and companies

    you will get laughed out of any investor office asking for things like NDAs if you're an idea guy with nothing

    people who waste years doing things like getting patents especially in tech, are generally not successful unless you become a patent troll

    I've heard the advice that patenting an app idea is generally pointless for most people. But this idea involves real estate, which is a very sticky industry on multiple levels, and my old boss is a very well-respected broker for the company I worked at. I do think that this is an idea of the time we're in, and that she could take the idea to her fellow managers and executives if she thought it was good enough to pursue

    I do wish it was easy to know whether or not you're spending time on the right things in this regard, though. I've only been working for myself/my own company for the past year or so and this is gonna be the first big thing I'm trying to do. It's sometimes anxiety-inducing to wonder if I'm wasting my time & money with something like the patent

    Just to note, though, I only started the actual patent application process a couple of weeks ago, and already have a provisional (which seems pretty pointless tbf). Unless I need to keep resubmitting this nonprovisional patent because of errors and s***, I don't think that specifically is gonna take up much of my time

    awesome bro. if you finish it feel free to share, i'd be happy to give some feedback

    if you get a working prototype you can easily raise some money these days to pursue your dreams

    good luck!

  • pay someone to code for you

    I'm down to do some user testing if you need any. My background is in UX so I could help point out things you may have overlooked or never even considered.

    Sadly, I don’t have the funds to do that at the moment
