    My friend asks: How much investment do you need?

    I say: That's up to you. However, we're looking for more than just an investor. We need a full time business partner.

    Is however used correctly?

    A common error with "however" is to use it as a conjunction joining two clauses with just commas.

    That's up to you, however, we're looking for more than just an investor.

    Your use is correct.

    Please pay attention to correct punctuation.

    More likely:

    Bob:How much money do you need?
    Sam: About $10,000. However, we're not looking for an investor. We're looking for a full-time business partner.
