Here is a list of resources for people looking for resources for
entrepreneurial endeavors in the technical realm. Statistics have
shown that something like 80% of all new business efforts fail,
so doing some up-front research could save you some grief. Maybe
your idea is not likely to produce the interest you envision; better
to decide that before investing lots of time and money. Of course,
you might be the exception - there have been many. Maybe you are
already in business and are looking for help. Hopefully, you can
find it from one of these companies.
