Awesome Foundation is looking for a project to award with 1000€!

Do you have an awesome project and 1000€ will kick it off? Apply now!

The Awesome Foundation, founded way back in 2009, is an international organization comprised of almost 120 loosely connected chapters all over the world. Each chapter functions independently with some centralized infrastructure support. Trustees each donate 100€ of their own money for each grant prize, which means they choose projects they really believe in.

Do you have a project that will make Berlin more awesome? Can you explain how you would use 1000€ to make something tangible happen? Then you should go to the Berlin Awesome Foundation website and submit your proposal.

The Berlin chapter of the Awesome Foundation for the Arts and Sciences will be awarding its first grant of 2015 in early May. Submissions for this round will be open until midnight, April 28.

Apply now!

Claudius: Design is the core of what we do and what we’re all passionate about, but hardly our only focus. Design, at LAUDO, stands more for designing a whole strategy, often very close connected with marketing. We’re developing websites and apps for our clients, but also help them reach their target audience through SEO, Google ranking developing newsletter systems, print brochures etc.

Claudius: A lot of other companies are seeing themselves as a service provider and don’t really question what their client wants and why. We pay very close attention if the work we provide for a client is in line with our personal values and vision. It’s not just delivering a product to the client, getting the pay check and leaving, but also building relationships with clients and collaborating. Because they are often our doors to new opportunities.

‘’We see LAUDO as an airport, where the clients are our gates to new guests, new perspectives and new potential clients. It happens all the time that whoever we’re working for, from there we get a new project, which wasn’t planned before. So we open up a new gate. That’s how we were able to grow and why good connection with our clients is so crucial for us.’’

Orietta: I think one thing that make us stand out on the market and our strength number one is the team. We’re a small team and we all look in the same direction and have the same approach and vision. That makes the communication go smoothly.

Joey: Another thing is that we have a very hands-on approach. We are the guys, who say: ‘’Okay, let’s do it’’. That’s our culture.

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.
