I start to define that Public funding is the tool with which the State helps the production system make the necessary investments for the development of new products / services and for the improvement of the company performance.
Despite the existence of these funds, we must say that there is no finance law facilitated that provides coverage of the entire financial needs; this means that if you want to open a restaurant, a computer company, a company that produces mechanical components or a company that makes glass processing or any other business, you can not think that money puts them only the state in the form of contributions or loans; a part of the investment must also cover it with your money. This is something that we must specify because there are so many aspiring entrepreneurs (above all) that a little “claim” that the State or whoever takes over the entire entrepreneurial risk from the financial point of view: that is, they imagine that to put the money it must be someone else. But such an idea is contrary to the concept of business risk, which is (and remains) of the entrepreneur.
