Raymond, thank you for your kind words - I am sure there are many in this group you can seek advise from

In my little experience of being an entrepreneur for the past 14 yrs., I have learnt that you ill be often faced with such odds. But with conviction, agility and perseverance, cynics are quite often proven wrong. If there is a disruptive innovation catering to a large market(I define it by having the potential to generate 100 Million in 4 yrs), intelligent folks listening to the idea go through what I call an "intelligent listener's paradox". Their minds resist them from buying into the idea even though they want to be a part of that success(whether they are VCs, Customers, Team, Suppliers...)

So don't be discouraged. If you have enough conviction
(which is tested to its pracitcality), you should be better off. Chances are you might fail, but you will be better off than those who never tested and tried. The experience will help you build your start-up better or better still another start-up! The best way to test your ideas is to discuss with more and more people in your relevant industry W/O being too possessive (at the same time keep your core IP away from the discussions) and finally have a proto-type to show what you are talking about. That often shapes your resolve and tells you what is practically achievable, which are the first few essentials for a start-up.

Rest everything shall fall into place in due time if you work towards it. These meetups/social groups are good places to connect with
"complimentary folks" with who you can discuss your ideas (invention in your case) and get them motivated enough to become your cofounders. Look for folks who do not agree with you readily! They often bring you the best value when convinced

All the best,

P.S.>usually my emails are shorter - so am hoping the group will pardon the elaboration

You seem pretty sharp; could you or someone you know
give me advice? 

my position as an inventor of a business method
/software is often mistaken here in NYC. 

I am trying to get something off the ground but when I
talk to people I am getting this  soft of: " who are
you, how much money do you have and who are your
valuable connections here". 

I am none of those things. --I am a salesman , writer
and amateur mathematician who has invented something
that just seems to work really well. 

I think people are expecting business or investor
relations when I speak to them and I am not those
things. I am seeking those things in others. 

What would you suggest?

to help guide you.
