Who is

Bits & Pretzels

Bits & Pretzels HealthTech started in 2022. But the Bits & Pretzels Founders Festival already has a 10-year history. Started with only 80 participants it grew into a crazy 3-day event.

Andy and Bernd initiate the first Founders Breakfast. Eighty participants join them at the famous Hofbräuhaus.

2014

Felix joins the team and 1,400 attendees gather for the first edition that is called Bits & Pretzels.

2015

For the first time the Festival lasts for three days. The grand finale gathers 3,500 founders at the Oktoberfest.

2016

5,000 attendees come to see the founders of Virgin, Airbnb, and other inspiring personalities.

2017

Bits & Pretzels establishes its quality over size rule and limits the number of attendees to 5,000.

2018

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.
