An investor invests money in the company but generally has no say in the management of the company. Some investors get stock in the company in exchange for their investment, which gives them a vote in what happens. Partners are also investors but usually invest in a partnership or an LLC rather than a corporation. They also usually engage in running the business on a day to day business. In my 23 years of business law I have never heard it said better than you did. "Contact experienced people in your field and start a conversation with them." That's how you interest investors in your company.
