We are happy to – now even more – officially announce the second edition of our beloved People in Beta Festival on Saturday, September 22nd.
It will be a one-day-festival for the startup, coworking and maker scene. So basically for all our friends and fools! It is for free and you are invited!
We’ll starts with an Awesome breakfast (10:30am)where we hand over the Awesome Award. During the community breakfast, the finalists of the Awesome Foundation will entertain us by pitching their wicked ideas. The winner will get 1000 bucks in cash. Please register here!
During the day we have several talks and workshops with people out of our community, like Edial Dekker from Gidsy and Fadi Bishara from blackbox.vc. The workshops will reach from DIY like Screen Printing or building the Berliner Hocker, via community enhancing workshops such as Skills Exchange, to knowledge workshops like Embodying Social Networks or how to enter the American market.
We invited several whizzes who will talk about various topics concerning startup culture. Mostly only slightly but humorously touching it though.
During the day you will also find yourself tumbling from one special to another. The Jazzy Berlin Community for example will send out some great musicians to play for us.
Our friends from the Urban Sports Club will take care of your bodily wellbeing and exercise you up with different activities, from table tennis to .. Wait! Let’s not take away the tension yet.
Kreamancer some friends from the Spanish coworking space Utopic_Us will perform one of their audio-visualization projects in the evening. And wonder what Loopcam and Twittratr will be pulling off. And if tumbling becomes falling over you can still drop by our in-house masseuse Nina at the Rest and Relax counter.
The grand-finale of startup related activities will be another round of the meanwhile renowned betapitch in the evening where ten hand selected startups’ ideas are trying to resist in front of a world proficient jury and 150 guests. (You can register as a guest here.)
Afterwards, you are all invited to underline the announcement of the betapitch winner by joining our evening kick-off betajam session in the yard. Whether having a cold beer to start the evening, lining up in the BBQ cue, playing the tuba, beatboxing or dancing, everything will be happily welcome. If you wanna join us with your trumphet or tuba drop us a line (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Of course we ll end the day with a huge “Goodbye summer” party. So even if you don t have time during the day, you can also join us for a night of great music and artperformances!
