Dear Member and Reader,
In this newsletter we continue our series aimed at bringing hidden gems” to the light of day. This mainly to illustrating that not only globally known and discussed places have infrastructure for promoting startups and entrepreneurship. This time we have added Dresden, Germany to the series providing some spotlights on the startup support in the Capital of Saxony. And there are many more articles worth reading – always with short information, contacts, and links for further details – and more is always available in the SPICA Directory Profiles.
