Get money/time/competence? If you're asking how to get 1-2 developers to work for 4-5 months for no pay then no, there is no magical way to get free labor.
Drop me a PM with more information, if the project is interesting and something different I might be able to help
So you need to write up a good "business plan" and find some investors.(JV section possibly)
Use the money from the investors to get some help.
You wont find any freelance developers that will work for 4-5 months without pay.
you could find a developer or 2 who are building a portfolio... PM me with more info if you want, i can let you know how much time i could commit along with others
I?m sure many people have great ideas to make money but if you don?t have the skills or investment to proceed with your idea then how do you expect to move forward?
You can?t start a JV as there is no reason for that person to keep you once you share the idea, your too busy working full time to dedicate yourself to the project anyway.
When I first started IM I had a full time job as well. I would come home from work and work on my idea, that idea soon evolved into a profitable ecommerce business where I was receiving more orders than I could process.
You idea needs to follow with dedication, passion and a clear vision.
without investors who will get a return on your idea you are out of luck man. I would suggest applying for a loan from the bank to get this all underway.
If you have no time, money, or resources I would suggest you come up with some creative bartering plans. You could exchange your product/service for advertising-whichever is less time I guess.
In your situation I would recommend to be slow and steady and build it up without any hurry. Once the product is matured, you can request some JV for promoting it.
Make sure you have the people that work with you sign a Non Disclosure Agreement. This won't prevent anyone from stealing your idea if they really want to, but it will help you build a case against them if they do.
You could always get a patent/s on your exact idea/s.
