Apparently, we at patanswer GmbH were not the only ones to believe that startup companies needed an improved access to information. The German Economic Affairs Ministry seems to have thought so as well! This month, the ministry launched a new Internet platform for founders. The platform not only offers information but also a tool for use in the development of a startup: brainstorming business ideas, planning a startup including even testing of a business model, and finding funding partners. We plan to test the platform and report in the months to come. Also, should you have used the platform, please share your experiences with us for publication on this site!
