A day's worth of investor-only stage content and networking. It’s a platform for peers to exchange on “The Future of VC”. In a rapidly changing industry.

Knowledge for corporate decision-makers from leading corporations. It is a closed circle where C-Level Executives share strategies on “AI in Action”.

Bits & Pretzels becomes more international than ever before. And so does the Startup Pitch, which we held since the very first edition. A new European level.

All those improvements are connected by this year's theme. Let’s harness Europe's immense potential by connecting all entrepreneurial stakeholders.
