Jessica Alba Speaks at Bits&Pretzels Startup Festival in Munich

Bits&Pretzels lands Hollywood star and entrepreneur Jessica Alba.

After Barack Obama, Munich's Bits&Pretzles Startup Festival adds a big Hollywood star to the speaker line-up. Jessica Alba, who is also a successful entrepreneur with her Honest Company will hold a keynote speech at the event, that takes off end of September.

"We are extremely happy that Jessica Alba accepted our invitation. She is a powerful entrepreneur who fits Bits & Pretzels perfectly with her purposefulness and desire for change." say Bits & Pretzels-Hosts Andy Bruckschloegl, Dr. Bernd Storm van’s Gravesande and Felix Haas. The entrepreneur and actress will hold the closing keynote during the event in Munich from September 29th to October 1st, 2019.

Alba, best known for her role in “Dark Angel” and Hollywood blockbusters (“Sin City”, “Fantastic Four”), founded The Honest Company in 2011. The mission-driven company provides trusted and effective products across a wide range of consumer categories.

As an outspoken advocate for safe childcare products, Alba is the driving force behind the brand. She guides the overall vision for The Honest Company and oversees the business in partnership with CEO Nick Vlahos. While the company launched with 17 products it skyrocketed into success, with a wide range of items across the baby, personal care, home, vitamins & supplements and beauty categories, selling over 100 products.

In her keynote, the actress turned entrepreneur will talk about her personal journey to become the founder of a reportedly billion-dollar company. In conversation with Tina Müller, Group CEO of Douglas, Europe’s leading premium retailer that introduced Honest Beauty exclusively to the European market, she will discuss the unique partnership both companies are teaming up for.

Jessica Alba has been in the news in the past days, because her social media account was hacked. The hacker posted raciest messages. With over 9 million followers on Twitter, Jessica Alba has incredible reach, making her a prime target for hackers. Maybe Alba will adress social media and her experiences in her keynote at Bits and Pretzels 2019.

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
