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.

FAQ

Why should my startup exhibit?

It's all about boosting awareness and building profound business relationships with critical partners and investors that will help you grow. Use your chance to get in touch with thousands of attendees, to evaluate opportunities and challenges, to find business partners and learn from others.

What is included in the Startup Exhibition Packages?

Each Startup Exhibition Package comes with a branded booth that includes an exhibition desk as well as two high chairs. Both Wi-Fi and electricity is provided by us. Additionally, you can enhance your representation for product demos and more with a 43” HD display with a floor stand by upgrading to either the Startup Exhibition Package “Growth” or “Rocket”. Whereas the Packages “Classic” and “Growth” allow you to exhibit for one day, the Startup Exhibition Package “Rocket” offers you two entire exhibition days.
