The term “light entrepreneurship” comes across in many places. What does it actually mean?

  • Light entrepreneurship refers to an operating model where a person uses the services of an invoicing service company to invoice his or her work.
  • In this model, you do not need to set up your own business or obtain a business ID.
  • Accounting can also be entrusted to the invoicing service company.
  • Light entrepreneurs pay service fees according to the billing; there are no fixed fees. Payments are only incurred when the light entrepreneur invoices the customer.

Therefore, light entrepreneurship is a flexible and easy way to try a small-scale business activity. It is especially suitable for people who start a part-time business in addition to their full-time job or studies, for example. Light entrepreneurship is also suitable to test a business idea if you are not yet sure whether or not to become an entrepreneur. Light entrepreneurship is best suited for selling services.
