Default Approaching A Company?

Hi there,

I'm new to the forum! I have a great business idea for a product in the nail polish industry. I don't have the technical knowledge to do make the actual product though

I have looked through my network and couldn't find anybody who might be able to help me so I think I might have to approach a company. Any ideas as to how I can do this? How can I protect my idea?

Cheers,
Robert

Lotta questions......
Manufacturing.....I don't know. Try contacting companies who currently make/sell nail products. Attend a trade show for the industry?

What type of product is it? That will determine what your next step is.

Is it a chemical? Is it an accessory?
