Deano’s answer to: “Advice for a non tech founder: I am 22 and have had some success in prior ventures. Have $75k for startup funds and no tech co-founder. Any advice?”

Based on the wording of your question, and the voluminous details of your incredible backstory: Focus on the awesomeness of your idea, rather than your own personal awesomeness – your background and achievements are something to wave in front of investors, not potential technical cofounders.

The kind of partner you seek will, as part of their extensive engineering background, know how to "google you" – and if s/he likes your idea, it'll happen naturally in the course of their due diligence. Talk about the problem you're trying to solve, and the interesting engineering challenge your solution presents, and don't worry about the rest.
