I work for a company in the UK in a technology-based industry that's only a few years old. The company is fairly young and the owner takes and active role within the company - so I see him fairly often.
This company is not his first and as I understand it from the employees who have been around longer than I have the owner has a real eye for new business ideas and has been highly successful in recent times (meaning he has the money).
I've had a business idea in an unrelated tech-based industry and I'm wondering if it's appropriate to approach the owner with this idea asking for funds?
He has given funds (and office space) to ideas (of his own) in the past.
