One option to avoid filing bankruptcy is to simply do nothing. If one has no income and no assets, they are considered "judgement proof" and typically creditors will not file legal action against them as there is nothing for the creditors to recover. Other alternatives include informal or formal negotiations with one's creditors, consolidating debt, or restructuring debt (essentially refinancing the original loan).
I suppose you could, but even if you did manage to get the financing together to open another business, any profits from it would be subject to seizure by the court and the bankruptcy trustee to pay off the bankruptcy judgement. There is no bankruptcy "judgment." If the bankruptcy is over and you have your discharge, you can open a business, and any money you make is yours. Providing the first bankuptcy is discharged.
