Too many people already do. Besides, the "grind rail" market is total bs. They make them strictly for little kids with rich parents. Someone can go to a welder and make a better rail than one they sell in a sports store for half the price.

find a high school with a metal tech class.  At mine they supplied all the materials and welding equipment to make my own.

Well, what's different about yours that sets it apart from everyone elses? You have to make a working model first. Then try to get something setup where people can't steal your design (assuming there is something different about it.) Then you make a video of someone skating it, send a sample of the metal so they can feel it (appeal to more than just sight,) then mail it to them with a proposition.

So... You're just planning to approach companies with no evidence of your work or the ability to do what you're proposing i.e. blueprints and expect them to be interested? 
Good luck with that... You fucking idiot

you need a business plan.  you need a business model.  meaning you need to describe how exactly you plan on building and selling a product.  where will you get the raw materials?  where will you construct it?  what are your costs? how many can you make?  how much do you need to make to break even?  whats your plan if you don't sell anything? you need to think about every possible question that will come up if you go on a sales pitch.  you need to have an answer.  it all has to make sense. you will need prototypes.  you can't expect someone to want to buy from you if you aren't organized, ready and planned

there is no fucking way. Make your own in metal shop class. that is your best bet because no company cares about some kid fresh out of high school who thins they know about designing/producing/marketing. Take a supply chain management class and you will see how complicated making the simplest shit it. Let alone grinding rails for kids
