I am Reginald, based in South Africa, and have a concept (only the idea/concept – I don’t possess the skills nor funding to take the idea any further).
It concerns the IOT, specifically website security /assurance to willingly deal with certain websites as opposed to others.
I’m seeking a partner who will take full control, from concept to rollout, and monetization, in exchange for me maintaining a small stake of say 15 to 20%.
Thank you.
