Advice on seeking partner in streaming music idea
I have an idea for a streaming music idea--it's unexplored idea that is similar to Rhapsody or Pandora with a twist for listening to music.
Anyone know what type of forum or web site would be best to find someone who may be interested in pursuing/developing this type of business?
This is my first post, so any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!

There are many many resources for startups.
What part of the world are you in?
If you're in the US I would urge you to find a startup weekend event near you that you can attend. I am a startup weekend organizer, if I knew where you were I could point you in the right direction. Startup weekends are a great place to start if you have an idea and want to find out uf it holds water and if so find a team to begin building it out.
Hackathons are also great proving grounds.
If you're in some rural area and simply have no resources I know a couple of places you can look for tech cofounders online.
But I need some more info to help.

Start by contacting Dina Mills
She manages that program and is also an organizer of 1millioncups RTP.
She will be able to help.
Tell her you were refered by a friend of the Kauffman foundation in kansas city and need some help getting plugged in.
I'd also suggest taking off on wednesday morning and driving to RTP to check out 1millioncups and engage in some networking.
