Holger Schulze (photo) has achieved what many people dream of: With his start-up he has turned his passion into his work. For some time now Holger has run a renowned whisky shop, “Whiskyzone”, and mail order business in Brandenburg an der Havel. One reason for Holger’s success is the comprehensive selection of whisky in his shop and the excellent advice he provides. The independent trader shares his vast knowledge about whisky in his shop and during whisky tastings, which he also posts as videos on the Internet. Via his homepage, visitors from around the world can get an intimate impression of the various types of whisky. With the help of the operating credit, Whiskyzone is able to expand its range of rare labels. Mikrokredit Brandenburg will support independent traders for up to ten years after company formation. “Often you can only buy the best brands in large quantities with upfront payment. That quickly mounts up to thousands of euros”, says Holger Schulze. The investment helps the business become more firmly established in the market.
