My question involves business law in the state of: North Carolina
I am currently working for a software company in the state of North Carolina. I have an idea and a design for eCommerce business in the retail market segment and would like to approach both vendors (such as JcPenny, Belk, etc..) as well as angel investors with my proposal. I would like to do this to get their feedback about my proposal before I quit my job and pursue this dream. I am reasonably sure my idea does not have conflict with the core business activities of my company and policies (based on my employment contract) but I was not sure if conflict of interest can have broader meaning as well. Any advice on how I need to approach this would be much appreciated.
