this is for you.
25–27 September 2022 • Munich
Europe’s leading founders festival returns to Munich. Join 5,000 founders, investors, and startup enthusiasts for three days full of learning, networking & inspiration.
There is a reason why we are called The Founders Festival: Back in 2014, Bits & Pretzels started as a small founders breakfast with just 80 participants.
Today, thousands of founders, the world’s leading companies and the most inspiring speakers are joining our annual festival – sharing the belief that entrepreneurship can drive positive change in Germany, Europe and all over the world.
In September 2022, we will reunite our exceptional community of 5,000 creators to support, connect and inspire those that will help solving the problems of our generation.
This is how you do it.
Grow as a founder
Bits & Pretzels is the only major startup event that limits its number of attendees. We make sure that you’ll get the most out of the Festival: Learn from the experiences and mistakes of our handpicked speakers and improve your knowledge and skills at the Startup Masterclasses.
Share your achievements
Bits & Pretzels is an event from founders for founders. At our Festival, it is easy to get your name out: Join our Startup Exhibition, pitch in front of hundreds of investors or promote your company by partnering with us.
Accelerate your business
The leading decision-makers in the startup ecosystem join Bits & Pretzels. Use this chance to meet potential customers, partners or investors. Our Table Captain eetings make it easy to create meaningful connections that accelerate your business.
Join a community of change makers
Our community wants to create real and sustainable impact through innovative ideas and technology. Imagine how inspiring it is to meet people who actually do stuff for three straight days. Be open and talk to each other – you’ll make connections that last for a lifetime.
France is our
first ever guest country.
Together with La French Tech, we’ll bring the most important French startups and tech companies to Germany – to unite the European startup ecosystems that need to stay resilient against the strong digital competition from the US and Asia.
At the Festival, there will be over 600 square meters of exhibition space dedicated to French startups and corporations. We’ll also host a special conference stage with top speakers from France.
Our partnership coincides with this year’s French Presidency of the Council of the European Union and President Emmanuel Macron’s plan to boost the growth of European scaleups and innovation.
