Thank for the question. @rhyolight has put together a list of HTM Consultants comprising community members that have experience with and interest in HTM implementations. You can read more about that in this earlier post:
If you and your brother would be interested in using this list to find some consulting help, feel free to shoot me an email at email@example.com.
Also, if you have application ideas you'd like to test and you have data available, you can try HTM Studio (http://numenta.com/htm-studio/ ), a free desktop tool that allows you to test HTM on your data without needing to do any coding or programming.
Hope this helps get you started. Happy to answer any additional questions.
