5,000 Founders do business at the Oktoberfest

See Table Captains

Join Bits & Pretzels
grand finale

With your Bits & Pretzels ticket, you get more than just access to the stage program. On the last day of the festival, 5,000 attendees go to the Munich Oktoberfest to network with 250+ Table Captains.

What’s a Table Captain?

A Table Captain at the Bits & Pretzels Founders Festival is a seasoned professional in the tech industry—be it a founder, investor, or executive—who guides discussions at their table.

You will have the unique opportunity to join two different tables. This allows you to engage deeply with industry leaders, pitch your ideas, seek advice, and expand your network.

How does it work?

Buy your ticket before it’s too late. One week before the event you can choose from the list of 250+ Table Captains. Pick your two favorites and join them in 45-minute sessions among likeminded participants.
