Back in the summer last year, Stefan Haas was just holding the workshop about Cultural Hacking when he met Catherine, the girl with the same interests as he has - the passion for artful interventions and cultural hacks which improve the world of work. Since then they've been developing the community and blog to share stories with like-minded change makers and business pranksters. In November 2012 they initiated the PoDojo learning community of fearless Product Owners at the betahaus | Berlin which is growing since then.
The mission of PoDojo is to create the “place of the way” - dōjō - to experience and learn the skills of product ownership. Here you will find regular training events, weekly Product Owner chats with practitioners about things related to agile product discovery, planning, development and product ownership.
The main PoDojo events which take place at betahaus are 3 days of intensive workshops, where product owners gather to learn the art of being an agile product owner which is far beyond just Scrum. Here you will experience what it takes to lead a team with the vision towards developing great products over the long term and with purpose. When you'll join the training, you'll be exploring customer needs iteratively and with empathy, sustainably, flexibly and fast - while having fun! Being a part of a specialised community is priceless, and therefor participants have a priceless chance to broaden their skills via being part of the #PoDoJo Sensei community network.

After you’ve taken care of your paperwork and you’ve signed up both in Bürger- and Finanzamt, you are all set up to start working. One of the best ways to get integrated into the city fast, meet like-minded people, and even find clients is by working from a coworking space. There are tons of benefits for freelancers and luckily Berlin has a lot to offer in this way. A coworking space is a physically collaborative shared workspace, which brings all kinds of creatives and entrepreneurs together. It’s a perfect place for startups, freelancers, digital nomads and even corporates searching for innovation. And it’s the biggest advantage towards the typical office space is that it pushes a collaborative exchange between its members and facilitates the creative process and networking.
