This may or may not work for you, but most of the things you listed probably can't be put on a credit card. If you need them done immediately in order to generate any revenue, try this.
Charge a month's bills, food and living expenses to a credit card and use available cash to pay for these. It's not a grant, and it's not going to work if you don't have any other income or savings, but it's one way to get a loan to pay those startup costs.
Warning: don't do this for more than one month, or if you don't expect revenues to come in right away. You'll need to pay your credit card charges off quickly, so this is only viable if you don't go into debt more than 30 days.
