„Startup Spritzer“ is an optimal place to present a new business idea and it regularly (i.e. once a month) – „always in the same place, at the same time, with no agenda and no barriers“ – gives the opportunities to young people not only to learn how to start a company but also to present their ideas and to receive an immediate feedback from the audience.
