I must say, this is the perfect time to start something new. If you want to provide a service, there is minimum to no investment required. You can start small by gathering some clients around you and work on small projects.
The problem comes when you want to deal with products. The first investment you have to make is right from the raw materials. I would suggest to give it some time, collect money and then start with your company. However, if this is not an option for you, target small raw material dealers. Have a conversation with them personally and show them your bright future. Make them your investors, where investment is not money, but the materials they are selling. Tell them your plans and show them the opportunity for them. Ask them to invest in your dreams.
This step is, obviously, not easy. There are only a handful of people who really want to support other people. You have to take some serious efforts, but they will pay off.
Once you start earning, the first thing you must do is pay for all the things these people have invested in you. This requires communication skills, honesty and the will to get down at their level without having any ego.
Having said all these things, you will still need money for legal purposes - registering your company, etc. You will surely require a minimum investment for that. Be ready for it.
So, best of luck for your company.

How do I start a business with zero capital?
Fortunately, there are two simple ways to start a business: either "Seed a Business" (to get "in the know" about starting a business in its early stages) or directly invest in capital.
Seed a Business
The "Seed a Business" method of starting a business is the more traditional way. It requires a customer for a product or service to come up with the required capital to manufacture and deliver it to you. However, it can also be applied to any business, large or small.
You don't need to have received a patent or patent application. You only need to have a set of product requirements (product list) to reach the capital
Your first thought might have been, "Man, I need to find people to teach me how to start a business. I'm not doing this by myself. I need to build some kind of community!" But that's not the case. It's just one way to figure out how to start your own business. And you need to ckow that that The Largest Banks can help you!
So the question is, what kind of business should I be starting with zero capital? Here are a few things to think about:
If I'm starting a start-up on the side, what will make the startup successful?
So, why should I start a business with zero capital? Think of all the ways your idea will affect someone else. Maybe you'll take someone who would be most productive and give them a little extra money to do something great. Maybe you'll get your friends to start a small company and hire them as their project managers. Maybe you'll organize a conference and hire people to share the proceeds. If the work you are doing is worthwhile, something with minimal!
The most important thing is communication. Think big and look for people who have already achieved success and get in touch with them, and learn to behave like them, which in the end will create the opportunity for you to either create a joint business or create a business that meets the needs of your friends.
That’s how I created my business club, Fortes. The main task of which is to help and develop the business (first of all, the business of my friends) due to professional competencies.
Depending on the type of industry you are breaking into, you may be able to find online platforms to start your business as a freelancer. However, if that isn't a viable option, you can seek business funding through various channels. Just as many others have suggested, it would be a good idea to start with a business plan. After you have that in place, it will be up to you whether you want to seek out investors, secure a small business grant, take out loans, etc.

I have created a growing company starting with no customers and no capital. Pickup basketball is a great analogy for starting a business. When you first start playing basketball, people playing will not ask you to play, you have to earn your spot on the court.
In the beginning, everyone has to find a group of players playing at their level and ask to play. It takes years but eventually players build up relationships with other players they play well with and start to hold the court.
You hold the court by winning. If you don’t win you must queue up behind all the other teams that have challenged the court.
This is exactly how you can approach business with no or zero capital and no customers. The first thing you must do is get in the game. Don’t expect to be great. Meet like-minded businessmen that are at your same level. Create synergy in a business where you work with them and they work with you. Team up to take on projects that you can’t do alone. Find better businessmen and stick together over time. Eventually, you will have a team of people that can attack problems in the area of business you have chosen and be successful challenging up.
The first thing that any start-up should do is to create a written business plan. This document will serve two purposes. First, it will allow you to create a realistic road map for establishing your business, including identifying how much capital you will need. Second, the business plan can be used to communicate to a banker or an investor(s) the viability of your business concept. The latter will be important for you to find the capital that you need.
If you have not written a business plan before and live in the USA, you can get free consulting from either a local Small Business Development Centers (https://americassbdc.org/) or from a SCORE office ( https://www.score.org/). Both of these resources are funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration and provide quality free business consulting. However, if you do not live in the USA, or there is not an SBDC or SCORE office near you, there is also a 30 minute SBA free, on-line training "How to Write a Business Plan" that is also useful (https://www.sba.gov/course/how-write-business-plan/).
Once you have completed your business plan then you will be in a position to seek further help in obtaining capital. The consultants at an SBDC or SCORE office can also assist you with that, or you can approach investors or bankers on your own.
Good luck with your new business.
Calculate your business idea. Write a detailed business plan. Add at least ten percent for unforeseen expenses and start searching for a place where you will be given a loan. If you do not leave the real estate as a security, then you can see the various offers on this site: https://getmyoffer-capitalone-com.amsterdam-holland-travel.com/
The company provides loans for various purposes, both for business and for daily needs.
Easy. If you want it badly enough, you'll do it. Self-teach, rely on interdependence, pay attention to synchronicity, sacrifice sleep, leisure time, for your goals. Sounds cruel in a way, but how much do you want it? That's your answer.
I started my business with subzero capital. I'm now the #1 Celebrity Numerologist in the world, 3-time bestselling author, syndicated columnist, motivational speaker, TV host, CEO of Authentic You Media and Eleven Eleven Productions. I have many celebrity clients from Chanel/Karl Lagerfeld to J.J. Abrams.
How? Blood, sweat, and tears - not hand-outs or wads of cash or capital. I came from a small rural city in the East Coast of Canada (Fredericton, New Brunswick, pop. 36,000) to living my dream and then some, in West Hollywood, California. Received the coveted 0-1 Visa originally (to move here) which is the Extraordinary Individual Visa, proving I'm top in my field.
How badly do you want it??

If you have an attractive idea and a business plan for it, then look for investors.
Develop a concept. Make a proof of concept. If you can start it developing like mobile apps, web apps, platforms, communities etc. then create something that will prove it will work. Go to any Venture Capitalist to help your startup work. VC will invest in your ideas.

I started online selling handmade items from home. As I perfected my craft and business knowledge, my sales increased. Within 3 years, I was able to save enough to move my operations to a brick and mortar location outside of my home. I began with my production and was not originally open to the public. Slowly and after the initial spending to set up shop, I began offering limited craft/art class opportunities for the local community to take. This was an added line of revenue for me. First, it was once a week, then 3 days, now we're open 6 days a week and have brought in a D-I-Y art line for walk-in traffic. In the past year, my production has suffered to bring on the additional lines of business, however, this is still in line with my long-term goals.
In the past year, I have also added more product offerings then what I initially started with and have brought in other artists as contract teachers to offer a variety of options to those looking to learn more. Since I opened a year ago, I'm still "studio/shop" poor and have not drawn a salary. This is not to say I am still self-funding the operations, but merely, that it has taken a year for the business to be self-sustaining.
Considering I started this all by making a few items and selling them online, and now 4 years later I own my own brick and mortar art/craft studio without getting a loan, borrowing money, or racking up credit card bills... I would say yes you can start a business without money but it will take a lot of long hours, hard work, dedication, and financial saving to make it a reality.
Also, you must love what you plan to do --- otherwise why bother!
I love what I do, I love the long hours, the craziness of not knowing what day it is, or if I'm coming or going because I'm doing it all!! I love the networking, learning new skills so you can save a buck here and there, and of course the great support system I have from my family and friends!!
I'm not crazy, really... I'm just not doing it for the quick return. Rather my goal is to build a legacy that gives back to my community and hopefully will provide my husband and I a little financial buffer when we retire. Most people don't get rich owning an art studio. But I do get to make people happy every day and even a doctor can't say that!
1. Many experts have already shared excellent ideas and URLs.
2. What exactly is your business idea? Who are your potential clients? Which cities/countries do you want to target? What level of business knowledge do you have? What resources do you have now?

Starting a business on a loan is not a smart idea either, so you don't have capital?
Well, one of the things is if you don't have capital do you have interest or skills?
Your money-saving ideology depends on how well you can do things on your own without spending. A great idea is only the first battle, enough capital is the second.
Quick ways to start a business with no capital?
Unless you have skills ready on demand or an inheritance business, or powerful convincing story I say don't start.
Your mindset shouldn't be the amount of money but on the amount of value- is it worth my time, what are my goals, and how can this strive?
If money comes into the mix, then there are no shortcuts. Crowdfunding is great but having a long-term commitment is even more valuable.

Capital isn't necessary to start a business. The key is to give extreme amounts of value. I was broke when I started Atlanta Hardscaping but I studied, read, and gave lots of value to potential customers. All it takes is one, so get creative and think outside the box.
