Berlin hardware accelerator just launched!

Get your tickets for the Demo-Day!

Have you ever heard of a party that starts on Sunday morning?

Well at betahaus we have one. Berlin Hardware Accelerator was kicked off by the Waffel-DJ who made the right mix of waffles for the brunch and brought out the 10 selected hardware startups on the dance floor.

The day continued with an inspiring speech of Edward Eichstetter who built the world’s fastest electro car and marked his name into the Guinness Book of Records. His success story proved that doing hardware is hard but worth it.

The tough schedule of the accelerator now runs from Monday till Friday. The startups will receive mentorship from experts from fields which are especially needed when building a hardware - Legal Issues, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Prototyping, Business Modeling and way more.

Moreover, throughout the entire week the teams will go crazy on the pitch training with many professional trainers. All of this will peak on the Demo Day on Friday Nov 22nd at 3pm.

Don't wait and get your tickets here!

More upcoming events and announcements you can find in our beta calendar!

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.
