Hello and welcome again. Thank you for your reply.
In my personal opinion, just start working and working on a business for over a period of time is the ONLY way you will get real experience. To learn to swim, you need to jump into the water. Mere reading of journals and internet reserch is certainly not going to help.
In the meantime, if you feel less confident, you can hire some professional help to assisst you. But you WILL have to start working to gain experience.
Practically speaking, crowd funding is the only alternative I can think of if you do not wish to appraoch high cost funds and conventional banking sources. The reason is, approaching Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors is not feasible as they typically look for very large ventures. As of now, I see this as only possible and feasible alternative.
I am sure this would help.
