Bits & Pretzels

September 2017—Innovation Journey meets “Bits & Pretzels”

The Bits & Pretzels founders portal is the optimal contact point for the first Innovation Journey to the Isar Valley. Where young entrepreneurs party in lederhosen and gather new ideas for their innovative business, representatives of large corporates are wondering what they have to learn from startups.

The visit to various locations in a curated and exclusive program turns the Innovation Journey into a temporary mobile Think Tank, a compressed version of an innovation conference, where a select circle of entrepreneurs and makers can think outside the box. Above all, it provides ideas that the entrepreneurs can implement directly in their business.
