Serious New Web Business Looking for Investor

Looking for an investor for a new crisis-proof, sure-winner, internet-

My business partner and I have found a corner of the online
web-market that has not yet been covered or available on the
internet. It has nothing to do with my existing businesses or websites
previously published.

In order to properly present this web-platform to the Swiss and
international public, we are looking for investors to cover the
initial budgeted costs. We ask interested investors from CHF
500,000.- upwards to contact us below.

The project has been tested thoroughly in nearly 50 scenarios of
diverse economic states. Upon the completion of each scenario the
project has proven to be a secure and profitable platform for all
involved. This web-platform will start initially in Switzerland and
move into the international market over the next few months to

Everybody knows who and what eBay and Ricardo.ch are all about.
This web-platform will become a household name like eBay and
Ricardo in no time at all. Our budget accounts for a public relation
campaign which will cover the whole of Switzerland heavily for a
number of weeks.

We will personally present our 24 page business plan and the basics
behind the project with serious investors after our prospective
investor signs a legally binding Non-Disclosure Agreement. Details,
answers to any questions or discussions will not be replied to here on
the English Forum. For this reason, and due to the fact that the topic
is not up for discussion, I asked the moderators to kindly close this

To clear any speculations in advance, this project is not snow-ball nor
pyramid in any way, shape or form. There are enough of these on
the internet.

If you are interested and feel that you are financially prepared to
invest in a project that holds an amazing amount of potential,
including 100% investor return (including fair interest) within a short
period of time, to please e-mail me right away! We are meeting with
three potential investors this week. Once we have the foreseen budget
coverage, we will begin immediately. Beyond this point we will no
longer require any additional funds.

PS: Understand that I will not reply to Private Messages or related
discussions here on EF. Please use the e-mail visible in the
photo below (not linked). If an e-mail is not visible below, you can
click on my name above and contact me via the website listed in my

Re: Serious New Web Business Looking for Investor

Sounds interesting.

You know, although it sounds counter intuitive, the best thing for your startup idea would be to share it with us.

The chances of someone here being in a position to jump on your idea and steal it are so ridiculously small as to be non-existant.

And besides, no investor is going to read your post and get in touch. Guaranteed.

So you would be far better off sharing the idea and gathering feedback. If the feedback is positive, then you can forge ahead. If the feedback is negative, then it might cause you to rethink and save you wasting time and energy working on a dead end.

I agree this forum may not be the right place, if you are on LinkedIn a group like Seedcamp or other start-up forum might be a better location for your request.
