Yes, even if you did not generate income from your new business, you may claim the expenses you had this year when you established your business. 

You can claim expenses for rent, equipment, licensing, etc. 

I don't know what product you are using, but I suggest TurboTax Self-Employed. It will walk you through all the possible deductions for your new business.
