Do you have any reason to suspect they will read your proposal? I can tell you, from personal experience, that large companies do not want to touch unsolicited proposals with an 11 foot pole. For them such a proposal is fraught with danger and their legal eagles probably will insist that it be returned to you unopened. If you want to write a business plan and shop it around to the VCs you will have what I consider a larger chance of success. Just remember that ideas are only worth only 10 cents a bale in 100 bale lots. In order to monetize an idea you have to start a company -- THERE IS NO OTHER WAY.I want to write a proposal (technical & financial ) about home automation to introduce it to Microsoft or APP .. etc

That's true. If it's a good idea, they'll just steal it, then tie a bow on it and claim it was their idea.Funding a company out of your own pocket -- aka "Build a few, sell a few" and selling your soul to the Vulture Capitalists are the only ways to monetize an idea. Neither one is perfect, but it is a complete fantasy to think that any company out there would EVER pay you for an unsolicited proposal.
Or worse. Suppose you act like a genius inventor and get a patent. Say you spend $15,000.00 of your hard earned dollars on a patent attorney who manages to get you a patent after 3-5 years. What will the large company do? I'm glad you asked that, because I'm going to tell you. They and their stable of high priced legal eagles will willfully infringe on your patent and DARE, that's right DARE, you to sue them to enforce your patent. After you spend $1,500,000.00 of your hard earned dollars and win your case after seven years, you will have to sue again to recover monetary damages. After 10 more years of farting around with the legal system you will be crushed, broke, and demoralized while they walk off into a golden parachute retirement. Don't believe me -- believe Don LancasterThat's true. If it's a good idea, they'll just steal it, then tie a bow on it and claim it was their idea.
