Markus Lintner grew up in Ritten, he attended primary and middle school there, then went to high school in Bozen. He started working in a workshop building doors in Ritten straight after school, but didn‘t stay in the same job for long. He eventually found a good job managing the Ritten sports arena. He says that he always knew he wanted to start his own business and be his own boss. He achieved that fifteen years ago, when he founded Pegasus, a private tutoring business.
