how to look for partners to start a restaurant business?

Restaurant businesses are not cheap. i know but i'm looking to invest a small sum and have a small share in the restaurant.

Where to look for people who are willing to put in the big amounts and share the small share i put into the business?

A shanty shack with a chef would still be a restaurant

A palatial outfit without one would not

So pray tell why would a chef striking out on his own need your small $ esp when he doesnt know you from Adam?

If he needs a palatial outfit he will go to the big $

He would easily figure that too many chefs would spoil the broth.
And would be chefs are even worse!

Sorry no insult meant. But this hopefully would give a dose of reality into your pie in the sky aspirations to be a restaurateur

If you are an investor with little money, your only USP would be that you have an excellent understanding of the business environment you would invest in.

Now in the restaurant business as you propose, what else than little money do you bring in? What's your unique expertise?

If nothing, then i'd suggest you go to NEA and bid for a hawker stall somewhere in the heartlands: little investment to be done and little knowledge other than how to make carrotcake needed.
