Bits & Pretzels is an application-only, three-day festival that connects 5.000 founders, investors, startup enthusiasts, and other decision-makers of the startup ecosystem. The festival takes place in a unique setting around the Oktoberfest in Munich. Next event date: September 29th – October 1st, 2019.
Successful founders from all around the world, as well as young aspiring entrepreneurs, meet at the event for inspiration, learning, and networking. Among the speakers are remarkable people from politics, sports and art for example, who have strong connection to entrepreneurship. Of course there are also founders and managers from e.g. AirBnB, Uber, Velocopter, MyMüsli, Runtastic, Stack Overflow, Zalando as well as well-known corporations. My personal favorite by now is sir Richard Branson.
On the last day, all attendees, speakers and table captains come together in one tent at Oktoberfest.
