Bits & Pretzels 2023 | September 24-26, 2023 | Munich, Germany
About the event
Every year, Munich hosts Bits & Pretzels, a three-day festival where about 5,000 people from the startup world get together. From September 24th to 26th in 2023, folks gathered in the city to share ideas and talk tech. The aim? To give entrepreneurs a helping hand by connecting them with investors, customers, and skilled professionals, and by spotting opportunities in various industries.
Bits & Pretzels has been around for a decade, helping various businesses grow along the way. It’s a pretty popular event for anyone looking to make waves in the world of startups and tech.
Michel Weinketz, our Co-Founder from Resycure, spent some time at Bits & Pretzels 2023, and it was an important experience for us. We’re a startup working with CHEMOVATOR (that’s BASF’s Venture Incubator), and we’re really passionate about changing business models to speed up the shift towards a circular economy. The festival was a great place for us to show people what we’re working on. We got to chat with other founders, investors, and leaders in the industry, all of which helps us in our mission to make it easier for Brand Owners and Converters to hit their Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) content and CO2e footprint targets, and at the same time, improving the quantity and quality of recycled materials globally. Our time at Bits & Pretzels 2023 helped us strengthen our spot in the sustainable innovation space and we built some really valuable connections.
Bits & Pretzels is more than just a meetup – it’s a place where founders can build really important relationships with investors, customers, and talented professionals. For us at Resycure, a startup that’s all about boosting the transformation to a circular economy, the festival was a key moment. It gave us a chance to show the world our approach and moved us further along in our sustainability mission. This year, at Bits & Pretzels 2023, we managed to cement ourselves as serious players in sustainable innovation, making connections that could help us shape a more sustainable future, cut down carbon footprints, and enhance recycling processes worldwide.
