is our
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 needs 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.

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 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.
