My answer to I’m a developer, I’ve an idea, how to look for funding? on Quora
If you only need $10,000-$15,000 you should be looking at funding it yourself—professional investors very rarely get involved for that size of raise, and you probably wouldn’t want them to—giving up equity in exchange for so little money is usually a bad idea.
The exception is startup accelerators, which are often set up for exactly this kind of investment. Y Combinator, Techstars and so on would be worth considering.
