Let’s Meet the Teams currently in betahaus!
This year more than 140 teams applied for an exciting three-month exchange in Berlin. The five winning teams at Accelerate Korea’s Demoday in Seoul were given the guidance, training, space and equipment needed to turn their ideas into reality.
So here are the five superstars who made the cut!
This awesome team is developing an online scrapbook boosting people’s productivity by
managing all their digital resources in one place...wow
Master Company is a dynamic group creating an extensive online platform for finding the correct construction machinery for any job – powerful and convenient.
Everyone knows that there’s a worldwide market of selfie lovers and Seerslab/ lollicam are tapping into it! They are developing a fun and creative selfie-editing app offering special visual effects and cloud storage.
ConsiderC is building real experience equipment that allows professionals
and amateurs to optimize their workouts.
Where better to develop a plan for an art and media social network then in the vibrant German capital? BBuzzArt is a social platform that connects artists, critics and art lovers in a new way.…and we couldn’t be more excited!
Hosted at betahaus | Berlin, Accelerate Korea will offer a full range of services for startups including inhouse hardware labs, mentor days, and pitching practise. Beyond training and mentorship, the program will offer the teams an unparalleled opportunity to build partnerships in Europe, test their business theses in the German market and raise investment. The program will round off with a Demo Day in Berlin, aimed at securing partners and investment.
Working through betahaus, considered the most concentrated startup hub in all of Berlin (thank you) these teams will gain access to an extensive network of VCs, accelerators, investors as well as the opportunity to network with a heap of other awesome startups.
We’ve custom designed Accelerate Korea to meet the specific requirements of each team. For example, for BBuzzArt we’re ensuring they gain maximum exposure to the art community of Berlin and RX Cycle we’ve planned exclusive research opportunities – and that’s just a taste of what we have planned!
Betahaus is providing special emphasis on the cultural aspect of this exchange. This is done through multiple workshops with relocation experts, meetings with business professionals, as well as providing some training in International Business Etiquette. And if that’s not enough Accelerate Korea is developing an alumni program for continual support even after the exchange has finished. You can see what the Korean startups are up to in Berlin on the Accelerate Korea fb page.
Check out other events coming up this month!
Have you met .. the Softblobs? Since moving back to Berlin from the US, Gesine Krätzner has been making strange creatures out of fabric that she calls Softblobs. They are cute, random, and they'll be waiting in The Basement if you want to try playing around with them.
From toys made of fabric, we’re moving onto wooden sculptures. Matt Danko knows how to bring wood to life and does it amazingly in his free time. In The Basement, he’ll show his latest furniture pieces and sculptures.
In the same room as Matt, you’ll find Lisa Büscher, who has prepared for us a hyper realistic sculpture presentation that gives it the touch of the extreme, surrealistic and absurd. She de- and reconstructs and reorganizes human bodies like Utopia does society.
Colette is a Berlin-based creative working in photography, art direction and set design. Through her visuals she explores intimacy and anonymity. The space that falls somewhere in between.
Ocean. Now! is a collective that accelerates ocean protection. They work with different types of art to motivate our society to protect the Ocean -Now!
In the early afternoon, based in The Garden, you’ll meet Amaury BOUQUET. He’s a Berlin-based French artist from Saint Maur des Fossés, who has a background in social innovation and loves to play with symbols in his works. At 10 Years in beta, he’ll do his special Humanist Tarot readings from 4-6pm.
Parallel to him, also in The Garden, Sebastian Olivares will be painting live a special Mandala created for betahaus. Sebastian is a Berlin-based visual artist who specializes in painting mandala murals and has painted murals in Germany, Chile, Australia and Thailand.
Throughout the day ilan katin will be putting the party vibes onto a mural, specially created for betahaus. He's a Neukölln-based artist with experience in visual work, both static and performative, graphic design, illustration, comics, installations, animation and live video.
We think this one speaks for itself. If you need a little glitz or glitter to get you into the party spirit, come early and we'll do the rest.
Last, but not least, special thanks to our lovely partners who are helping us making this event happen.
Pilsner Urquell and Fritz Cola for the drinks, Emmy, Drivy, FrameRight, CoffeeCircle, Dream Facilitation, Moruga and BioWine for supporting our Prize Draw and our media partners from Silicon Allee, ASK HELMUT, Creative City Berlin and TechCode.
