"Patent applications must be accompanied by a working prototype"
That would prevent me from seeking funding for the prototype. Requiring a working prototype at the time the patent is submitted only benefits wealthy corporations.
I should be able to obtain a contingent patent relatively quickly, and once I am able to build the prototype, I would submit it to get the patent validated. Of course there should be a time limit between the two events to prevent me from sitting on the patent.
