I have 42 beverage patents in the US and in other countries. I am looking to commercialize and monetize multiple opportunities in multiple markets that have had proven sales success.
You should check out cool apps like Weave, Shapr and Sites like FounderDating (getting some traction).
Attend pitch evening or networking evenings and breakfasts where many such candidates might be attending looking for their next great challenge or advice.
Try to look for meet ups that are in the food/ beverage space. You could also work out of food/ beverage focused accelerators where you might find a person passionate about the problem you're solving.
Make sure you pick someone who fits what you're not good at. Too much overlap of strength becomes a focal point of disputes.
Try the following:
- Founder Dating (http://founderdating.com/)
- Cofounders Lab (www.cofounderslab.com)
- Entrepreneur First (http://www.joinef.com/)
- Post a 'job' on Angellist to get contacted by interested people (https://angel.co/jobs)
- Check out relevant local Meetups (Meetup.com)
--- Or sub-reddits specifically relevant to your topic
Think of, and research, places (online or in real life) where people like who you're looking for would hang out. I know this sounds obvious, but think about not necessarily the exact interest you have in mind, but any usually associated interests that may go along with that interest as well.
If you want to brainstorm other ideas, or have other questions send me a message.
Best of luck,
