Good luck with that. Nobody seems to want to pay for system level software anymore. They might shell out a few bucks for a game that they will grow tired of after a few weeks, but they expect their OS, tools, and other platform software to be free (as in beer). You might build a system, library, or algorithm that collectively saves the world economy a $ billion dollars per year in saved time, electricity costs, and/or hardware upgrades; but don't expect to get paid anything for doing it. Sad as that might be, it seems to be the reality we currently live in. For the past few years I have been building a new data management system that blows the doors off a bunch of file systems and databases in terms of performance, but I can't get anyone to fund any of it. They all have the same reaction to the demo of my partially working system..."That is amazing. Let us know when the development is complete and tested in an enterprise environment and we will use if we can have it for free" (as if I had a bunch of magic slave elves coding for me all night in my basement in order to accomplish those things without any resources).
