I am 15 years old, I know some programming like HTML, CSS, little JavaScript and Ruby. And I know little on developing android apps. I have got an amazing idea, I have talked to my father about the idea and he likes it very much but he does not have any expertise in Internet field. I am allowed to put my heart and soul to it. But I don't know how to get employees to manage and incorporate my company. I am seeking help about it from everyone, please help me regarding these. Thank You

Use your coding skills to build an MVP (minimal viable product).  In other words, try to build a prototype with the minimum feature set that is needed to test out if your idea is a hit with potential customers.  When you get to that point and you have something to show, find a mentor or an entrepreneurship group that can help you from there.

Hi Sahil, Find a mentor. Perhaps someone from here. Find an accountant and a lawyer. Get a board of advisors. Surround yourself with people whom you can trust. Jacob Kojfman 604 318 4539

Wholeheartedly agree with Jacob. Also, work in short execution/validation cycles. That is, don't spend a whole bunch of time and resources building something out in a silo. Instead, to the extent that you can, execute your idea in small, manageable chunks and seek validation from potential customers at each point along the way. It's not uncommon for ideas to change/mature once feedback loops are implemented.

Not sure what you mean Allison.  App development is absurdly easy.  Most any 15 yr old should be able to create an app in an afternoon with a kit like Intel SDK.  Publishing it to an app store is just as easy.  It's why there is so many junk apps out there.  What's misleading about that, and why would his father disapprove?  Whether he succeeds in this is immaterial to the fact that it's a far better activity than what most 15 olds are engaged in, and should be nurtured.

Homework first. go to steveblank.com (steve blank dot com) http://steveblank.com/ and read everything. When you've done that then come back with more targeted questions. It is highly unlikely that you will get any initial capital without some 'traction' first. go find out what 'traction' means. Do extensive product market fit homework first.  Then build a mockup/prototype/MVP. do more PMF homework. Then go get some users/customers. Then you might be ready for initial seed money. You will also then have more credibility with potential investors, partners, customers. Homework first.

Jessica Alter, who founded this website (founderdating.com) has an interesting take on amazing ideas and I share her thoughts in that regard.  Here is her take:

I have no doubt you will have success in your endeavors be it this or any other ... just remember the value is in the execution, not the idea.  You will only succeed when you realize that critical fact.  Good luck!

Because you mentioned you know/learning HTML, CSS, JS, I would like to suggest you look at ionic framework. In my experience, it's a great framework to come up with a MVP quickly. When you have a prototype in hand, you will be in a much better position to convey your idea to potential partner/investors.

And some of the earlier comments have great advice for you, so try to make use of them.
