The solution requires software processing combined with a professional service. Validating the idea has been easier than I would expect. Finding a capable and willing engineer will allow me to gather a larger investment to complete the MVP and the ability generate sales . A small investment used for contracted service only gets a demo and feasibility analysis completed. Which way should be better for a business at this stage?
Either you should add founder that is technical or hire a technical team that be on module basis payment mode (in this case you have to seek for money).
Second option is better if you don't want to share your equity.

If you are a non-technical founder looking to create software in any form, I would certainly suggest looking for help first.
Many of the companies that I consult with don't really grasp the 'M' in MVP. It is often attributed to their lack of technical knowledge and the costs associated with adding each piece of functionality.
If you were to seek money for your startup, my assertion is that you would not be able to accurately quantify the amount of funds that you require to reach your MVP.
