You need to take your idea beyond the idea stage. Ideas are thick on the ground and in the air. One can usually not just peddle an idea. Is this a business you want to own and run, and you are looking for financing?

If that is the case, you need to create a business plan. The business plan outlines what your concept is, why it will succeed (it’s a new idea not yet in the market), it has to have some market research (who will use—what type of customer, how many potential customers are there, who are the competitors, why will your business succeed better than those competitors), what is your plan for marketing and selling your business (in the case of online for driving traffic to the site), your projected expenses and revenues.

Good luck.
