Anita I have like 1000 ideas.  I think I'll float one on crowdfunding just to see how it goes.

It all sounds pretty streamlined, but the question I have is, if your an inventor, and you want to patent something, but your caught in that catch 22 of needing to build the invention to apply for said patent, and therefore don't have the object itself to show off to financers to impress them.. what would you do? adding into that, that you have zero experience in the patent process or paperwork legalities like that.. what would you do?

With more than 700 crowdfunding platforms globally its hard to find the right one to raise money. We at crowdsunite.com are working on categorizing all of these platforms so that users can filter, sort and compare them. Users can also review the platforms.

@BrianWaas you don't have to build anything before you apply for a patent.  If you can draw it so that it is understood how it is made and how it works that's all you need.  you can file the patent application just on that.  No prototype needed.  Better still you can file a Provisional application for a much smaller filing fee.  Only make sure you describe it nine ways from sunday how to make and use it and how else it can be used besides how you originally intended it and how with a little modification it might be made more robust or more dynamic.  You get 1 yr to convert it to a full blown patent application.
