Barack Obama Speaks at Munich's Bits & Pretzels 2019 Startup Conference
B&P organizers Andy Bruckschloegl, Felix Haas, Dr. Bernd Storm van's Gravesande got Obama to speak at their Munich Startup event.

Will former US President Barack Obama wear Bavarian Lederhosen?

It's tradition that speakers at the Bits & Pretzels startup festival wear Bavarian Lederhosen on stage. Not all speakers have committed to that tradition over the years. Let's see if Obama takes the plunge. I know that Barack Obama enjoys Bavarian beer. I remember that he had a tall one on his visit to Bavaria in 2015.

Obama is going to be the most prominent speaker in the history of Bits & Pretzels. Other big international names in the past included Sir Richard Branson and now fallen Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey.

The 44th President of the United States will speak at the three-day festival in Munich held from September 29th to October 1st, 2019. "Leadership is all about inspiring and empowering people to change their world – and there isn't anyone on this planet embodying this as much as President Barack Obama", say Bits & Pretzels-Hosts Andy Bruckschloegl, Dr. Bernd Storm van’s Gravesande and Felix Haas. "We are honored that President Barack Obama accepted our invitation to come to Munich and share his wisdom and passion with our Bits & Pretzels community."

President Obama will open the event on September 29th. In a moderated conversation, President Obama will touch on his time in office and his thoughts on leadership in the world. Update: Jessica Alba will close the bits event, speaking on stage.

Every year 5,000 people travel to Munich to find community, to help and learn from each other and the speakers that the Bits team presents on stage.

Bits & Pretzels is an application-only, three-day festival that connects 5,000 founders, investors, startup enthusiasts, and all other decision-makers of the startup ecosystem. The festival takes place in a unique setting around the Oktoberfest in Munich from September 29th to October 1st, 2019. For details and tickets for Bits & Pretzels visit
