He Did this, What about You,
Although Ilya Sachkov started out with $5000 he had made achievement far beyond his start up capital, we understand that $5000 is somewhat a large sum for most start ups but the truth is that this particular business can be started with even lesser capital another advantage is that this business sector is still in very high demand as every country needs cyber security body and all you need to start is the proper brains around and maybe some bunch of old computers running Kali Linux and some few more nerds around.
Just like him, success is waiting for you only if you can give it a try
