Betahaus | Actually

Brace yourselves - Christmas is coming!

Our current mission is to get you Christmas-ready. We'll do it with plenty of possibilities to complete your gift-list, stuff your winter belly with lots of waffles and Gluehwein, and get you into that love-is-all-around-me-vibe by providing you with a variety of social mixers with interesting people.

Our line-up consists of:

- Free DIY workshops to make presents for your dear ones (or yourself)

- Sinterklaas Community Party + Awesome Award

- DIYmonds MARKET

- betahaus | vouchers: the ultimate gift-idea

More infos about each and every single one of them

 

FREE OF CHARGE WORKSHOPS - December Series @ o2 Live Concept Store

Within our December Series, we will hold 3 free of charge workshops for you. Each of them is supposed to hit 2 aims with one bullet: introduce you to a specific craft or design field and get an awesome Christmas present as a result.

Pick up what's yours and join in. Sadly, the number of places is limited, so first come first served.

- IPhone Case Design

- Christmas Tree Bubbles

- Eat Design

- SINTERKLAAS PARTY -

This is our community gathering. We would like all the coworkers to grab a Gluehwein and waffle in good company and enjoy the evening together. Among other funky actions, you can expect the Awesome Award and the Secret Coworking Santa reveal. The “Secret Santa” is  for all the coworkers who would like to receive some special Christmas care and give some too. You are very welcome to join in! Just drop by reception, they'll fill you in on all the details. Another highlight is the DIY WORKSHOP: YOUR GLOVES ARE BORING, during which you can create gloves that allow you to use your touchscreens without having to take them off! In addition to making them functional, you can also embellish them however you please and thus make a fantastic personalized present for someone special.

- DIYmonds MARKET-

Come around to betahaus on December 14th if you’re up for an unconventional, interactive bet(t)a Christmas Market. Find a special christmas present for your friends or family, hand-crafted by selected artists, get creative and make one yourself (we will hold a Christmas Special MAKE AFTERNOON for it!). Obviously, besides all 'unconventionalism', you'll be still more than welcome to have a hot drink with your friends and simply enjoy the pre-Christmas atmosphere.

- betahaus | VOUCHERS -

Since we already got several requests for it, we decided to launch it officially.

We have produced beautifully designed vouchers which a lucky receiver can use for absolutely any course or workshop from the betahaus| Education program. At the moment, we have more than 10 different education directions - from 3D printing up to Fashion Design and PR, so they´ll have a wide selection. The vouchers will be valid up until the end of March, so there's enough time for deciding on the right course. Moreover, if they wish, the voucer could also be used for renting coworking spaces at betahaus.

If your nearest and dearest are hungry for knowledge people, willing to explore something new and to try something unknown, the voucher is there to make your pre-christmas life easier.

That's it, hope you enjoyed the list. If you have any questions about any of the happenings, just drop a line to reception@betahaus.de

Be motivated, be inspired and be there - or be square!

OKAY BUT HOW IS BESPOKE SOUND DIFFERENT THAN PLAYING MY "DISCOVER WEEKLY’’ OR ANY OTHER AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED PLAYLIST ?

Well, both. Currently we offer the following two options: shorter publicly available Brand Playlists and long-form private Soundtracks for spaces. For both of them we work closely with the client to understand how sound fits into their brand DNA and what their audience is like.

We believe that the guests’ experience with a particular space doesn’t have to begin and end with their stay. The idea of the Brand Playlist is to be a public brand playlists designed to engage the customers before, during, and after their visit at a space. It’s always accessible for them and serves as a new, dynamic marketing channel.

The Soundtrack is slightly different. It takes sometimes up to weeks of work and is designed by a world-class artist, DJ, or tastemaker. For it we first work with you to develop a deep understanding of your business and style. Then we match you with the perfect artist, DJ, or tastemaker to create unique, always fresh playlists, custom tailored to match your brand. 

In both cases, we update them regularly based on guest habits and clients’ needs.

The way we engage with the music community is something really important for us and honestly, what makes us different than other background music providers. A lot of the background music providers out there have internal teams of maybe five or six DJs that do all of the music for their clients. We aim to connect with the local scene and always work with local DJs. There's some kind of magic in finding the exact right artists for the brand.

And on the flip side of it, when we hire artists, we make sure that the project is also inspiring for them and that they would be interested in participating. We always make sure to pay them well. The whole project creates for them a new income stream that they wouldn't have otherwise.

Yes! This was really fun. The objective with the betahaus "betabeer sounds" playlist was to showcase the community side of betahaus. There are so many cool, interesting people in the betahaus community and we thought a playlist could be a perfect way to not only help bring the community together but also show the diverse funkiness of the communities of Berlin and Neukölln, which is why Hazy Pockets, a longtime local Berlin DJ known for his eclectic mixes, was perfect for this project.

This playlist moves from bluesy 60s rock into surf and tropicalia, picking up momentum into Motown and onwards through some laid back disco tunes. Perfect for the betabeer events betahaus hosts monthly!


YOU’RE CURRENTLY ENJOYING THE SUN FAR FROM BERLIN. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE PLACES in berlin that YOU MISS THE MOST?

Oh, there are just so many! Like the Imren Grill for instance where you can find the best homemade Turkish food or Das Gift and Gordon which are both run by great music people. Kohelenquelle in Prenzleuer Berg is my favorite local bar (or rather kneipe). To satisfy my  techno / electronic records needs I always go to Hard Wax and one of my most special places is the Zions Kirche steeple, which has an awesome view of the city and a great Weinerei close by. 


You can see me around betahaus. Online, you can always check out my website and listen to our public playlists on Spotify. We’re also currently working on a collaboration with betahaus, so a special Playlist curated by is will very soon sound around the spaces in Kreuzberg and Neukölln.
