How do I raise capital before I have a patent. Can I protect my idea before I have the money? What resources can I use to learn more?

It seems a patent costs upwards of $ 10k, with my new idea I am currently working on prototypes, and would like to do a dry run to find the interest (likely at a lowered price. I have enough capital for either a test for proof of concept (hopefully) OR a patent.

What suggestions do you have? Where can I learn more? Where can I learn more about testing the market (how many I need to reach, etc.).

I’ve read books, none agree, some websites appear to be made by folks who’s only idea was starting the website for advice. I have big hopes but a realistic outlook and need help in these areas
