Gibraltar company Lottoland took its place among Europe’s elite start-ups at Munich’s Bits & Pretzels Festival in September, with Gibraltarian Elicia Bravo taking centre stage.

Elicia, Chief Strategy Officer for the Ocean Village based company, was among the speakers at the prestigious event, which attracted the likes of Richard Branson and senior figures from leading start-ups such as Airbnb, Evernote and Kayak.

Oscar winning actor and tech-investor Kevin Spacey was also among the attendees at the event, which takes place during the world famous Oktoberfest festival.

“As well as being one of the fastest growing companies on the Rock, we’re also among the fastest growing start-ups in Europe – which is why we were able to take the stage alongside the likes of Virgin and Airbnb at Bits & Pretzels,” Elicia said. “Our presence at Bits & Pretzels is a huge accolade for our business, but we also have to acknowledge the role Gibraltar has played in our rapid development. Since we began operations here in 2013, Gibraltar has provided the perfect setting for us to grow. It’s for these very reasons we’re committed to staying here and building on our position as one of Gib’s top employers.”
