Dear Bits & Pretzels Community,

We are excited to announce this year's theme for the Bits & Pretzels 2024 Festival. In a time when economic sentiment on social media and in news outlets often seems daunting, and Europe seems more fragmented than ever before, we find strong signals of unity and success from startups throughout Germany and Europe. Their success stories offer a glimpse into the possibilities that lie ahead, motivating us to further contribute to our European startup community.

With a newfound sense of excitement, we are proud to introduce this year’s theme: Kickstart Europe

Kickstart Europe is more than just a theme; it’s a proactive call to action to leverage our collective capabilities and ignite a spirit of entrepreneurial solidarity across the continent. While difficult times breed uncertainty, they also create space for innovation and new solutions. We're excited to provide bold and open-minded stakeholders with the platform and network they need to navigate the complexities of entrepreneurship and build a supportive ecosystem that nurtures bold ideas and economic empowerment beyond boarders. 

This festival is set to showcase the vast opportunities within our unified European ecosystem. We are eager to dive into discussions, share pivotal insights, and celebrate the successes that exemplify our collective strength and ambition.

Join us at Bits & Pretzels to discover, participate, and be motivated as we embark on the journey to kickstart Europe, unlocking new potentials and nurturing a community spirit that drives us all towards success.

We are looking forward to welcoming you, as we gather from across Europe, in Munich this September!

Greetings from Munich,

Together with the Bits & Pretzels Team.
