You think it’s a good idea to meet at a company that likes you or at a university where most of you study anyway.
Never ever depend your space on external sponsors. Donations are great, but remember that companies can go bankrupt and you won’t be a student forever. Meeting at a university will exclude high-school kids or people who don’t like the university culture. No company, no matter how nice, will give away presents forever without asking for favours in return. That’s capitalism...
