I was wondering if I could get some thoughts on my current situation. My 2 other co-founders and I are currently working @ full-time roles across a couple of different companies. We're ready to take the next steps on a side project we've been spit-balling about over the past couple months but it requires a pretty hefty 100K investment in some hardware. Has anyone ever worked with a pre-seed investor at this early of a stage to get things up and running? What do these agreements usually look like? Where do I find pre-seed investors outside my network? Do investors ever give no strings attached money to explore an area they are interested in?
Let me know if this question has already been asked or if there are any relevant resources that I'm just blatantly missing. Thank you for your time!!!
