A Fab Café - Let's Do This!

Last week we got to know about the Tokyo based FabCafe throughout Weaving Cats Travel Log Blogpost over here. Michelle also wrote about it since she was there with Peter.

Last week we got to know about the Tokyo based FabCafe throughout Weaving Cats Travel Log Blogpost over here. Michelle also wrote about it since she was there with Peter.

What strikes me about this place is it’s welcoming atmosphere and casual introduction to fabbing. It’s in the heart of one of the busiest neighborhoods in Tokyo, and Chiaki says they get a lot of walk-ins who discover a nice-looking cafe, have a coffee, and then get curious about the laser cutter.

This week this came along on Twitter:

Followed by this Blogpost explaining the story behind and how difficult it is to get access to  rapid prototyping equipment in HighTech City Berlin whilst it is no longer a question of big money oder low demand.

Well, that is what we want. Let's do this. It seems the right time. Now let's have a look at how this can be done. a) Let's have a look at what we already have, b) what we are still in need of and c) where this could lead to.

  • What we do have: 
  • We have got the space. We have got Open Design City and the betahaus Café.
  • Opening Hours are Mo - Fri 8 am - 8 pm, enough time to fab.
  • We have got Staff operating the bar, opening the space, administering keys, supplies and taking care of payments and organizational needs
  • We have got a limited number of tools in the back
  • We even host the 3D Printer (Makerbot) of an honored citizen of Open Design City
  • What we are (probably) still in need of
  • We'd need a properly set up 3D Printing Station that can be moved around and fits into ODC and the Café and it should be very accessible
  • We need somebody being able to operate it on standby or it should very very easy to operate it yourself.
  • We need a Project Owner who is moving things forward until things run smoothly. This is a Project!
  • One might want have a Lasercutter as well. But maybe this goes to the future section. We have to start somewhere.
  • This could lead to
  • A real Fab Café in Berlin
  • Better and bigger Machines later on
  • More Workshops, DIY stuff.
  • Revitalization of ODC

Berlin, what do you think of this?

Click here for more announcements and events at the 'haus! 

The new space is six stories spread out across 2800 sqm. We’ll be renovating the building with our members in mind, so here’s what we can promise:

  • 5 Floors of Coworking Areas
  • Event Spaces
  • More Meeting Rooms
  • More Team Rooms
  • More Call Boxes
  • A Rooftop Terrace
  • A Café

We'll be updating The Move landing page with photos as we have them, so watch out for that!

when do you need a notary?

We’ll open the doors of our new space between mid-August and mid-September 2018. We plan to begin moving in July to ensure that the space is functional and comfortable by the time you get there. Bottom line, we’ll do everything we can to make the move as seamless as possible.

The move is our third big announcement of 2018 following the news that we’re be expanding our operations with betahaus | Tirana and managing coworking for Berlin’s new blockchain space, Full Node

The idea behind betahaus was never to be just a coworking space. We wanted to create a platform where people of our generation could thrive personally and professionally. We’ve always thought we could do this on a much bigger scale and we’re thrilled to see it happening. We’re excited about what we’re able to learn from this move, not just for betahaus, but for the future of coworking in Europe.

We’re sure you have a lot of questions about what’s coming next. 

We want to hear from you! Email us at themove@betahaus.com or join us for a closed Town Hall where we’ll answer all of your questions and talk through any concerns. We’ve also started members-only page for FAQs, resources, and important dates about the move (check your inbox!). 

We've got some big changes ahead of us, but one thing's for sure: we're so glad to have you with us for the ride!

We're looking forward to this new challenge, and will keep you updated along the way. Get in touch with any questions you might have about Full Node!

Not a blockchain startup but looking for a coworking space? Be sure to check out the flexible membership options at betahaus!

Finally, You describe your target group as LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability), which is a very niche market. Can you tell us more about what type of people they ARE and what theY value? What's some advice you can share to other startups targeting this market?
