After going through my resources, I do not have what is necessary to complete at this time.

I am opting out and opening up to the other professionals and messaging a couple who might be able to help.

Someone should be with you shortly.

There are a number of investors that can be further investigated about seeing if they wish to invest in your bench which to me sounds like something that could be popular in home improvement stores as well as Bass Pro Shops for example.

The Houston Chronicle as a excellent business section and offers ideas on finding investors:
