skiprob Posted July 21, 2007 Report Share Posted July 21, 2007 I am new to this Forum. I do not know the rules so therefore I apologize in advance if what I'm posting is inappropriate. However, I'm glad I found your site because what I'm about to post is "extremely" important and am doing so because it appears to be a very enlightened group. I "believe" that I have recently invented a windmill that is substantially more efficient than anything ever produced that can operate in wind zones as low as Zone 2s. I have built a small working prototype, filed the provisional patent, incorporated, started working with attorneys on business plan design and private placement memorandum. The catch 22 is, to provide a substantive business plan, requires efficiency/cost numbers that have not yet been determined. I'm not just a talking about a percentage better, I believe it will test out to be multiple times more efficient. With all that said: Engineering needs to be done. We're bing quoted US $30,000K to $75,000K just for Phase 1 - Modeling, analysis and getting to construction of full size prototype. If it is as efficient as I believe, We should probably have two engineering firms run the modeling to obtain efficiency numbers. We have just initiated contact with three engineering firms. Their assignment is to determine what sized "Robinson Windmill" would be required to produce 15 kW and to determine estimated costs of same. Guest what my last name is? International Patents are estimated at $150K to $200K, Prototype at $20,000 to $30,000. A war chest for potential litigation is estimated at $500,000. So in conclusion we need investor(s) that can drop $1,000,000 US with the potential of losing it. Can we take a start up to profitability? Sure you can but, as anybody whom has tried will tell you, it won't be easy and it's very high risk. Skip Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
