I am an amateur inventor, with a background in finance and real estate. I have a couple ideas I've fleshed out and think would make solid products, however, I am finding I do not really know how to bring them to life and create them. For example, one idea deals with coin reading technology and display- a technology I know exists but I do not know how to incorporate with my product or how to create it myself.
Is there a good resource to use to find people/companies for a wide array of products? How did you go about finding someone to help you create your early products?
