Google for "Angel Investors" these are rich people with money and nothing to spend it on. They will listen to proposels from various new inventors and small business owners and consider putting up the front money for projects.
I know some in my area. I'm saving their contact info incase i ever actually finish one of my inventions.
This is what i mean by the "Wife Test".

Rather than saying the wife said 'No' you say "I had a funding plan, but it failed the 'wife test'. "
