Our values

Founders are always first

Bits & Pretzels is an event from founders for founders. We don‘t compromise when creating content for our fellow entrepreneurs. Everything we do is about giving founders what they need to achieve their goals and reach for the stars.  

Quality Over Size

Bits & Pretzels is the only major event for startups that limits its number of attendees. To us, it’s important to rather gather the best players of the ecosystem than keep growing and sacrifice the quality of your event experience.

We do things Bits-Style

We always give 110%. This ambition makes us pioneers of our time, looking ahead - ready to tackle problems with our community. With enthusiasm for technology and precision, we provide an exciting environment that enables founders to shape a better future.

THE COMMUNITY

We love progressive change-makers. Always questioning the status quo and looking for new ways to improve our environment. We want to create a world of possibilities with true & sustainable impact for everyone who joins Bits & Pretzels. Our aim: to constantly develop and benchmark a better future.
