The best Kick-start that you need is a client or a series of clients that lead you to launch your activity. It will give you the credibility and personal confidence in what you do. Ideally your business project should not need a lot of external investment. Your savings and some clients should be enough. Question yourself if you spend years to ask for financial help before you make the first sale. “Savings” and “Clients” that enough for a kick-start.
