That sounds to me as if the people you approached for funding were the
potential users. That's not the normal way of doing business. If you wanted
to open a coffee shop, and tried to fund the venture by asking people
walking down the street to contribute to your startup costs, I think it
unlikely that you would collect $100. But that doesn't prove that people are
not prepared to pay for coffee. People do finance the opening of coffee
shops: they write a credible business plan and take it to the bank manager.

Did you have a business plan? If so, I'd love to see it ;-)
