Submission + - Dealing with investors for the first time

geekymachoman writes: I had an idea for web site, that intrigued some people, who know some other people (Investors mentioned in subject), and the investors now want to adopt the project, and start financing it. Marketing, development... etc.
Majority of my professional life I was an IT guy, rarely dealing with people outside my field of interest, like many of you people here. Geek generation(s) if I may say.

Now, since this was my idea, and still is, and I'm developing the project, it's a matter of time when we'll negotiate the percentage of projects profit and control over decisions for project, and I have no idea what to expect or what to ask for.
The investors are American, and I'm not US citizen. Don't know if that's relevant.

I'm asking you, fellow slashdot readers, to share you're experiences and any information you can disclose and think it would be helpful for me, on how to deal with these investors, and what to expect from them.
