I have an idea that I have been working on for quite some time. The idea deals with VR/AR, so it's fairly new and high tech software I'm looking to build. I have done some market validation, even met with a few investors already. They all tell me that I need some sort of a prototype to show.

I have been in contact with a development house as well. The contact I have had is very positive. I feel comfortable and a connection with the people who I would be working with. They are proposing some user experience workshops and then developing a simple prototype to start. I have faith in them that they could build whatever I ask them, and I need this done quick without a lot of hassle. I also realize they are there to make money and I don't want to be naive. 

I wonder, is this a huge mistake to go to a development house right off the bat with an idea?
