Hi,
If you have a good pitch deck and a decent BMC (business model canvas), "all" you need to do is start sending it to investors. There are lots of free, online lists on the internet. The problem isn't finding them, it's making sure that you send the right pitch deck, the perfect emails/contact method, and that you select the right person to send to.
You're welcome to send me your pitch deck after scheduling a call if you want my opinion and advice on how to contact investors and/or my opinion on your idea in general.

Hi
there are numerous payment methods today - more than ever. Also, there are various tools and software that measures the amount of liquids that have flowed through a certain point.
So there are available solutions, but in order to give you a proper, educated answer I would need to know how you currently deliver the fuel (fuel truck? Barrels?), do you do it yourself or one of your workers? How (online? Bank transfer? App?) and when do you currently collect payment? Also, what is the problem that you are experiencing.
What country do you work in? All the above influence which solution fits best.

Hi
This highly depends on the industry and the country the parties are from. Each country and each industry has different rates.
Finder's fee ranges from 3% - 10%.
Real estate agent's fees range from 0.5% - 2.5%
Commodities deal broker fees can range anywhere from 2% - 20% - it all depends on the deal and the value that you're bringing to both sides. The higher the value, the higher your fee may be. Either way, I suggest you sign both sides on a 'finders fee' or "broker" agreement
I can help you draft one of these if you need.

Hi
The 3 more relevant pricing models in this case would be:
1. competitive Pricing - comparing the prices of your competitors and then setting your price accordingly (if you are new in the market, then perhaps lower. If you have a 'brand name' then perhaps higher).
2. Value pricing - basing the price based on the value that the course gives your clients (in THEIR eyes).
3. Bundle pricing - combining numerous services/products under one price tag - this gives a feeling of added value for the clients/customers.
In this case, I would combine the value method + the competitor pricing. If possible, try ask clients what they would be willing to pay (offer at least 3 options, all of which are ok for you). You can either ask them directly (at least the first group), or you can setup a 3 different landing pages (Wix) with 3 different prices, and see how people respond to each price. I am happy to explain more on this if you need.

Hi
Good luck.
A few options:
1. use AB testing: show different prices for the same service (either using different pages), or if not possible, show one price for 1 or 2 weeks, and another price for the other 2 weeks, and so on (3-4 times) until you find the ideal conversion price.
2. Use a survey for existing clients - ask them how (much) they value your business - you might be surprised for the better. Don't forget to offer an incentive for people who take the survey.
3. Raise prices, but add something to the new offer - even if seemingly small to you. this way, they are paying a bit more because they're getting more (which makes it feel justified to them) and not just because you raised prices.
Good luck

1. Tip: stop using cap locks. It says a lot about you (or your keyboard), and both aren't positive.
2. I can help review your business plan, and give you feedback. If indeed it is good, I can help you validate your idea, which will then increase your chances of getting an investment.
3. I can help you create a pitch deck for investors, practice pitching them, and contacting them.

Short answer: lean methodology. If done correctly, you can do a market validation test/MVP in a matter of days/weeks for each of the 3 ideas and at a minimal cost. Based on the results, you should decide which idea to invest all of your time on.
Here's a link to a past answer I gave explaining how to do market validation: https://clarity.fm/questions/6423/how-do-you-do-market-research

If it's too hard for you to let go of the other two ideas, and can't delay them, recruit a founder who will be the CEO (not easy relinquishing control, but better to have a part of something than a part of nothing). But only bring in another founder if you're the type of person who can 'let go' - if not, you're just going to be sucked in and eventually find yourself working on all 3 ideas.
[I'm curious to hear what the ideas are. ]

I'm sure that this question has more complexity to it, but the 2 best options are:
1. a multilingual website with the 3-4 main languages that you are targeting. There are many wordpress templates and plugins that enable this. The only problem is that it can make the website a bit 'slower'/heavier and can eventually cause bugs if not programmed correctly.
2. Create multiple websites - one for each country. This might be better for SEO and makes the websites simpler and faster. But managing it might require slightly more time.
I think that the costs should work out more or less the same.
Good luck

I'm not 100% sure what you need, but if I understand correctly, you could find relevant professionals here on Clarity, and on Fiverr (freelancers), and you if you have existing clients, you could also advertise a competition in which they offer ideas, and the best idea wins a price (it's also good PR for your company - so win-win)
