I hope this is the correct message format for me to ask:
I have a very solid idea for a Non-Profit which involves two main components;
I have already done my own market research and contacted local and state entities for 'buy-in', and have complete support from them. The local businesses and community organizations are ready to move as well.
I have no start-up capital, nor know of anyone who would invest (family, friends) into this type of organization.
I have contacted my local SBA office just to perhaps do a little 'brain-storming' and was told, until I had a completed business plan, they wouldn't entertain a meeting...I have gone bankrupt in my attempts to get this moving, and lost my home in the process. But I believe in this model and it could be integrated geographically into other regions of the U.S.
Here's my question:
So, how do I move forward? I have been in contact with a local foundation who told me, that upon my starting up and having a Board of Advisers, they would invest -- but I cannot get there until I can take the first step.
Any ideas, (if I haven't already tried) would be greatly appreciated.
