Bits & Pretzels HealthTech 2022

Advancing healthcare through new alliances

Bits & Pretzels HealthTech premiere was a success

More than 1,500 founders, investors, healthcare providers, and corporate executives attended the first Bits & Pretzels HealthTech Conference, held in Munich, Germany on 29 & 30 June 2022. Participants from all across Europe came together to network, discuss and share ideas on how to best build new alliances to advance healthcare together.

In just a little over six months, the events’ curation team, under the leadership of Bits & Pretzels together with founding members Roche and EIT Health, put together a diverse agenda with the top goal to provide engaging sessions and expert perspectives to startups and founders around the four focus topics of patient journeys, the provider perspective, health(care) systems of the future and transformational technologies. 

The two day program was filled with inspiring keynotes, lively panel discussions, insightful masterclasses and - most importantly - a wealth of networking opportunities: be it via the matchmaking function of the event-app, fireside sessions or an expo-area where solutions and ideas could be presented or pitched to potential partners.



Roche is a founding member

Roche became a founding member of Bits & Pretzels HealthTech, as part of its efforts to expand the  reach and scope of its collaboration with healthcare start-ups. Roche previously organised its own event-series “Future X Healthcare” which was focusing on the German startup scene. This partnership with Bits & Pretzels is hence seen as the obvious next step in expanding the outreach to founders and startups.

“The premiere edition of Bits & Pretzels HealthTech was a great success. The vibe among the participants was very energising and inspiring. I had great discussions around how we can work together to create open and secure digital ecosystems, to break down information silos helping ensure easy and seamless patient journeys, and to bring more digital innovations to customers faster. We are already looking forward to continuing to contribute as a founding member in the next edition in 2023.”, summarizes Moritz Hartmann, Global Head of Roche Information Solutions.
