Berlin Events: Bergfürst Grill den Gründer with C.H. WOLF on July 10th

The idea is (presumably) that this is an event to get to know the founders and ask them questions about their business model, strategy etc. – and if you get convincing answers, you will hopefully invest in them (via Bergfürst). To get me to invest, it would have to be very, very convincing, but… let’s wait and see. 😉
