Sorry if this is in the wrong section:
I've had what I believe to be a pretty sound idea for a service, based around an app, that might sort of generally resemble an Uber type format - matching customers with independent vendors to provide a service. It's not about transport in any way but it generally follows that format. My most sceptical and critical friends and family have reacted positively to my idea and this is encouraging me to try and see if there is something here. I'm currently unemployed and struggling badly to find work in my field so I'm considering dedicating some time to this to see if this is the opportunity I feel it is.
The trouble is, I'm not much into technology. I use computers and smart phones but my background is business and the commercial world. I have absolutely no idea where to start. I was hoping for some very high level advice about where this type of service might start from. The need I've identified is universal so this type of service might easily travel overseas or it might even be best launched elsewhere where there is higher population density. Things like copyrighting, territories, legalities and developing the actual app and anything I may not foresee are what I'm interested in.
