The token gated community for web3 builders - not for grifters.

Our mission: To foster a collaborative, inclusive, and innovative community of the best web3 builders who are dedicated to advancing the decentralized web and empowering individuals and organizations to take control of their own digital identities and assets. We are committed to upholding the highest ethical standards in all of our activities, and will not tolerate fraudsters or grifters in our community.

As a first initiative of our token gated community we would like to invite selected people from our network to a Web3-Weißbierfrühstück. After a few inspiring talks from founder-members, we will have enough time to network. We'll make sure it's efficient and your valuable time is well spent.

Judith Gerlach, Staatsministerin für Digitales

Ich freue mich, Schirmherrin des ersten Alphafounder-Weißbierfrühstücks zu sein. Als Digitalministerium verfolgen wir neue Entwicklungen wie Web3 natürlich sehr genau. Aus diesem Grund ist der Austausch von Gründern/innen in diesem Bereich essentiell. Wir können gespannt sein, was hieraus entsteht.

We would like to invite all members of the web3 community to support the Münchner Tafel and make a donation for people in need.
As the economic situation continues to be challenging for many, we are seeing an increase in poverty and homelessness in Munich, one of the richest but also most expensive cities in the world. These vulnerable individuals are in desperate need of our help and support.


Alphafounders is not an initiative of Bits & Pretzels. It is a personal initiative of Bernd & Andy, the two founders of Bits & Pretzels. In 2013 we founded Bits & Pretzels as a cozy Founders Weissbierfrühstück to support the Munich startup scene which didn't get much attention at that time. Bits & Pretzels grew fast, and today, the mission has expanded to strengthen the European startup ecosystem. We firmly believe that Web3 is a breakthrough technology that has the potential to disrupt today’s internet landscape. With Alphafounders, we aim to connect Web3 **builders** with all relevant stakeholders and interested parties to build a strong community.
