What is the start-up stage? The start-up stage is when you have only a business idea but you are getting ready to legalize it, or you have just created a business and it has been operating for less than three years. You have already started to produce goods or to provide services but you need financing to satisfy various needs in the start-up stage.
Thus, in this stage you can benefit from loans granted under preferential conditions and the possibility of repaying them with interest rates near zero, guarantees that can be used as collateral, and partial compensation of labour costs. And if you believe that your company has great potential for growth and expansion and could sell some of its shares in order to become a unicorn, you can take advantage of venture capital investments, e.g., acceleration measures, etc.
