Oktoberfest Fun in Munich!
This was my first Oktoberfest in Munich and it was something else. It coincided with a great investor and start-up conference called Bits & Pretzels. It was interesting to see all the different young companies and see the innovation happening in Germany. There were also two speakers at the event I really wanted to see: Kevin Spacey and Sir Richard Branson.
Facebook LIVE from Octoberfest. Just me, my lederhosen, and 5000 people...
I have a BUNCH of photos from Oktoberfest. There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes photos from the live show and some random stuff too, so enjoy :)
Here's my friend Alex Piuitti, who was responsible for us coming to Germany. He's a great guy! In the middle, there is Sascha from Plotagraph Pro. This is one of the only times she wasn't wearing all black like a ninja.
It was also a big tech conference. You can virtually see this gal is reality.
Here’s Felix, one of the organizers of Bits & Pretzels along with the mayor of Bavaria. I was honored to be invited up on the stage with these two as we all sang Happy Birthday to the mayor!
This was about 3 minutes into the live show.
Another fun behind-the-scenes shot.
Two revelers at Oktoberfest. Apparently, there seems to be no age limit there.
Here I am during the live show asking Sascha more about Plotagraph Pro as she was sending a shout-out back to her partner Troy in LA.
Here’s Alex and Raphael Fellmer and Martin — these are the founders of Sharecy.org — a new company to combat the wasting of food.
Here’s one of the guys that was at our table... they all had their own startups as well. Great dudes. This guy happened to be a longtime fan from Cairo.
Another one of the revelers... everyone looks good in these German outfits. The female one is called a “Dirndl.”
This is my new standard Bavarian pose in lederhosen. When I was not engaged in active conversation, I would assume this pose until someone walked up to me.
