Oct 2016 : Wednesday
This was my first Oktoberfest in Munich and it was something else. It coincided with a really fun conference called Bits & Pretzels, which is a conference all about Entrepreneurs and Tech, mostly based in Europe. It was interesting to see all the different startups and see what’s going on over there. There were also two speakers at the event I really wanted to see: Kevin Spacey and Sir Richard Branson. They were great! 🙂
Here’s a BUNCH of photos from Oktoberfest. We shot a live show while there, so there’s a bunch of behind-the-scenes photos there too! 🙂 Some random stuff in here, 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.
Here’s one of the behind-the-scenes shot during our Live FB Oktoberfest show. Everyone here was an entrepreneur or a venture capitalist. This gal was a VC with big funds to invest.
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 major of Bavaria. I was honored to be invited up on the stage with these two as we all sang the mayor Happy Birthday! 🙂
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 sends 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.”
Daily Photo – This is how I really dress when at home…
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.
