Bits & Pretzels Founders Festival 2018












From 30th September to 2nd October, the renowned start-up festival Bits & Pretzels was held in Munich in parallel to Oktoberfest. This year’s event was themed Diversity & Gender equality. A message from the organizers:

Gender equality is also part of this year’s Bits & Pretzels Festival – because the topic of diversity is in the foreground! We believe that diversity helps us unleash the greatest entrepreneurial potential. Diversity in our workforce, in new markets, in our products, in our community and in our thinking in general, will be the key to more and greater opportunities ahead.”

Almost everything that has a rank and name in the industry is represented. In various conferences and lectures, everything is discussed about the digital world, specially Artificial Intelligence. One of the most awaited sessions is the Pretzel Award competition, held on the second day, where 100 startups present their product. Different from typical pitches, this under the motto “Show, do not tell”, startups should not say a word about their history, market size or financing, but only show what the product can do and which problem it solves. This year, Inveox received the esteemed “Golden Pretzel”.

Last but not least, networking is a top priority. In the course of the 3 days, GLOBALS CEO & Founder Mario Paladini, was able to participate in various discussion rounds, sessions and interview colleagues from tech scene, as you can check out in the videos below! See you at #bits19!
