Hello, it took me for many years to come out with my startup idea. After doing a lots of research, & analysis. Not just an idea, but in term of design too. Logic, user-friendly, clean, minimalist, all the design pages are based/followed the current tech industrial formula. I had hired few designers for this project, and asking them to do the specific design for what I wanted, through 99designs, and of course they need to sign the NDA doc. Now, the design concept (prototype) is almost completed. I need to forward my design (project & idea) to another designer for them to start doing analysis to make it more perfect (or maybe creating/adding more design). So the question is, how can I protect my idea and design? It took me a lots of work for this, from idea to perfect design & prototype. Now it just need a good coder to make it alive. I don't want in just a few hours all of my hard work get copying or clone by other. 4. I'm new in this startup field. My plan is... idea > sketching > design > coding > market. Is that true? I have the capital not much around xxxk btw. I read few content on the blog, its more complex than I ever imagine, witch is I need co-founder, and stock % etc and etc lol Thanks.
