Today, 5,000 founders, the world's leading companies, and the most inspiring speakers join our annual festival and Bits & Pretzels HealthTech is on the way to become Europe's most important event for healthtech innovation. We all share our belief that entrepreneurship and innovation can drive positive change in Europe and all over the world.
