What I Will Do With $5,000

We need to build working prototypes (printed pieces) real materials to demonstrate the ideas. We have secured our patent pending - design and utility - we have paid for and reserved domain names - we have paid for trademarks - but we need prototypes - we have prototypes we have put together (rough drafts) but real working prototypes would help demonstrate our products to would be partners and the like. We are looking to partner with large manufacturers on a royalty basis.
