The Founders Festival Munich 2019
What an amazing event, we attended one week ago. We were at the Bits & Pretzels, an application-only, three-day festival that connects talents, founders, investors, startup enthusiasts, and a lot more decision-makers of the startup ecosystem.
Everything startet at September, 29 when a whole exhibition hall of “Messe Munich” was filled with about 5,000 people, waiting excited for the opening key note of Mr. Barack Obama, 44th president of the United States of America. It’s barely conceivable but the three founders of B&P, Andy Bruckschloegl, Felix Haas and Bernd Storm van’s Gravesande made it happen. After two years of constant effort, Mr. Obama confirmed to hold the keynote – we must admit a very impressive and so optimistic keynote, midst the well-planned opening ceremony. “Impact” was the overall slogan of this year’s #bits2019, and we think with such an opener, the three founders really left up to this motto, while Obama emphasized for instance “diversity, the right balance between freedome and a common understanding and female experts”.
The second day, we fully concentrated on EmotionAI and tried to bring this topic closer to the audience. We had a lot of traffic at our exhibition booth and a lot of very interesting conversations. We presented our latest developments and heard about so many projects, TAWNY might fit in. Let’s take the step and work togehter!
Last, but not least on the third day the meetings were held in the “Oktoberfest” tents and offered a lot of networking possibilities.
We only can say: “This was a completely successful event!”
Thanks to all the organizers! See you next time!
