For further information into this area: There are numerous investment opportunities out there and in order to attract investors, especially angle investors, there are four (4) main aspects the project has to deliver. 1) The idea have to be special and at best unique, with sizeable barriers of entry. Thus it should not be easy for others to copy the project. For this there can be many different barriers but there have to be some barriers. 2) The project must add value to the user - what exactly does the customer gain from buying the product? 3) Demonstrate market traction, thus that the pilot project can actually turn into earning money, and 4) Have a strong team of people running the business. Without good people no good idea will develop into a success. I hope this is useful and best of luck.

-1 point.
By pitching your idea a potential investor may find it attractive. It means that you describe your project in brief - what is your investment, who do you want to sell your product to, why and how will it make money. You may promote this idea on this platform. Good luck
