Starting a software company, as an academic

I am an academic about to get tenure, but I'm thinking about an alternative career trajectory. In particular, I have an idea for software that (I believe) could be revolutionary, related to my field of study. I'm thinking of quitting my job to pursue this. [more inside]

How to divide up my new company?

What's the best way to approach this discussion without coming off as a jerk? [more inside]

how can I find an good(hopefully inexpensive) manufacturer abroad( outside US)?

Need help finding manufacturer abroad to produce a product. I'm struggling finding companies that are still interested when I tell them I am a small business startup (with a great idea!). I understand that telling manufacturers that I'm not going to put in a huge order they are less interested but a girl needs to start somewhere! There are so many people that read this site I thought someone might have an idea or experience doing this. Thank you very much!

Where can I find a partner for my business?

Where can I find a partner to help me build a business based on a Web service? I'm 18, I'm not going to be in college for at least a year, and I can fund the venture for 6+ months out-of-pocket. But the programming is far too much work for just one person. [more inside]
