Hi all, first time posting here. Is there a place for getting feedback on an idea or an MVP? Ideally free. I have a product that I’ve built that’s very simple, but seems like it could be potentially useful but I don’t really have anyone to proof the concept for me. I probably should have done this before building it, but I tend to be overly optimistic 😅 Thank you.
Israeli pharma-tech company Syqe Medical recently conducted a clinical trial in which they found evidence that inhaling “extremely low and precise doses” of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the principal psychoactive component in cannabis products – can be used as an effective pain reliever while avoiding the “common [psychoactive] side effects” normally associated with cannabis use.

I'm a 40 year old, father of 3, software engineer that's had one business idea after another all my life. All my friends know this about me so when I sprung my current project on them, they took it about as seriously as their spam folder. I suppose if I were them, reading what I believed my (then future) software will be able to do, I'd think it was all bullshit too.
However, fast forward 6 months (and thousands of lines of code) and I've got a working MVP that does exactly what I said it would do. It's ready for technical alpha testers but I have no-one to help me build and run a business around it.
But sjones204g, why do you need a co-founder?
- I need help with the non-technical parts of the business such as marketing, product design, etc.
- I also want someone I can talk with to validate my business plan.
- I've read that VCs dislike solo-founder startups because "if you can't convince a friend to join, why should we?"
That sounds fantastic, great reasons all around sjones204g. But why can't you find someone?
Almost all my friends have middle-school aged children and don't have any flexibility. They can't afford to lose their health insurance and I can't afford to pay them.
Also, I'm super apprehensive about looking for co-founders in the general populace because I need someone I can "trust with the contents of my wallet."
tl;dr: I have trouble convincing people making $ 150k/year to jump ship (without health insurance) and put their entire livelihood on the line. Especially when they're already biased against "yet another sjones204g idea."
