6 Ways To Launch Your Start-Up With No Cash


Yes, many successful companies were launched with a significant amount of funding, but it’s important to realise that the prospects of a business’s success are not directly related to the amount of capital the company was started with. You really need less money than you think.

If you’re discouraged by lack of funding, don’t be. While it may sound counterintuitive, in many cases, starting with a small amount of capital is preferable to launching with a large chunk of cash.open-sign_starting-a-business

This was a pivotal starting point for me, and it enabled me to go on to found my company, Renters Warehouse. It wasn’t a huge amount of money, but it was just what I needed, and it was well spent.

If you’re considering starting a business, a small amount of money can go a long way towards building your future success. Here’s how entrepreneurs who are big on ideas, but short on cash can get started.
