A Sneak Peek Inside our betahaus l Pop-up Spaces in 2018

We're on tour this summer while our new location at Rudi-Dutschke-Straße 23 is being restored! In the meantime, we've got our Pop-up @ Köpenicker Straße 154A all set for coworking and a pretty cool satellite space where you can book your events.

It was big summer of goodbyes. We closed down our Club Lounge, had our last party in the betahaus Café, and moved our favorite furniture out of the Loft before closing the doors on Prinzessinnenstraße 19-20 once and for all. 

It was hard seeing our favorite spaces empty after so many good years! But this ride is far from over. We've started our move into bigger and better spaces, and that means an opportunity to start fresh.

Our Pop-up Coworking Spaces

Our new Pop-up @ Köpenicker Straße is spread across two floors and divided into Club Level (Ground Floor, Entrance A) and Pro Level (First Floor, Entrance C). On the Club Level, you'll find the Front Desk, our two event spaces, and our Club coworking area. The Pro Level is designated workspace for all of our Pro Members. Both floors are Flexdesk only and include access to a tea kitchen, toilets, a printer, and meeting rooms. The openness of the space allows people to get in contact even easier and creates a collaborative atmosphere.

Our Pop-up Event Spaces

At Köpenicker Straße, we have two event spaces available and customizable for all kind of events. Our Pop-Up Lab (60 sqm) is an intimate space that serves as a location for presentations, meetings or cocktail hours. The room offers privacy while being closely integrated into our coworking environment. If you need something a bit bigger, you can expand your event into our Pop-Up Loft (110 sqm). This is our biggest space with capacity for large groups and flexible design to ensure a collaborative environment for any kind of event you're planning. The space is combined with the Lab and equipped with plenty of seating, so the room can be easily adjusted to anything you need. // Book an Event Space

Our Satellite Event Spaces

Apart from our two event spaces at Köpenicker Straße, we've also struck gold with Der Bogen, a space that regularly hosts creative events and collaborations. Der Bogen is located right next to the Spree at Michaelbrücke, 1. Flooded with light and views of the water, the space offers the ideal environment for creative and special events. The space is 170sqm and can fit up to 70 people, so Der Bogen is well suited to a cocktail night, a workshop, a creative meeting or a design sprint. // Book an Event Space

Probably the biggest benefit of coworking is community and events. Now we know it may not be the first thing you’re looking for as you seek out your next office space, but bear with us.

Imagine using your lunch breaks to chat with someone in your industry. Meeting freelance developers at after-work beers. Networking with investors at BETAPITCH. Pitching at our weekly betabreakfast and getting support and feedback on your new ideas.

betahaus has spent the last 10 years cultivating a community of people who we genuinely like working with. And when you join, your team will become a part of it, too.

" People matter! Community was always what we were all about. ‘’

In June we launched #PeopleInbeta - our monthly blog post series in which our Content Manager - Vihra interviewed teams and freelancers from the betahaus community to present the variety of creatives we have in ‘haus, to understand their missions and get some useful advice for our audience. We talked on topics such as sustainability (with PlanA) , decentralized digital identity (with JOLOCOM), curated music experiences (with Bespoke Sounds), freelance photography (with Sara Herrlander), full-stack development (with Obst Digital), design (with LAUDO) and much more.

"The Summer is the best time to host Backyard sessions and BBQ’s’’

In the summer, we launched a couple of new events in Neukölln like Freelancers, Unite!, The Backyard Sessions and My friend’s BBQ. 

Freelancers, Unite! developed as our productive coworking session with freelancers from in and outside the ‘haus. Once a month, we picked an important freelance topic (such as taxes, time-management, etc) and invited experts to give us insights on the topic. We saw so many new faces and had the chance to come back closer to where we started from - the freelance, grassroots culture.

Another event, which started in July (and turned out to be our favourite events) were The Backyard Sessions. Organised by our queen of Neukölln - Robbin – the Backyard Sessions are our creative evenings with live music jams, movie screenings and cocktails.

This last event was hilarious because for quite some time, nobody knew exactly who organised it or invited them. The friend was throwing a BBQ for the community in the garden and this led to all our members joining and staying after for a beer or two with us.

‘’My favourite moment this year was the second friends bbq which was actually cancelled because of the rain forecast. But despite the bad weather, people show up and it turned into a super nice intimate evening with Elizaveta and Paul giving a garden concert.’’ - Robbin (Community Manager, betahaus)

''In July, it was great how the casual after-work BBQ turned into an impromptu acoustic blues jam session with Elizavetta Barsegova and Paul, who have the voice of an angel. Actually, all of the My Friend's BBQ's and Backyard Sessions were AWESOME.’’
- Paige (Head of Marketing, betahaus)

"As a coworking space, you have to give stage to important topics.’’

This year we released a new event format in Kreuzberg called ‘’The betaSalon’’. It's an open panel discussion which aims to give stage to important topics and give free speech on them. The fist one we did on the EU elections, last month we talked about changemakers, but our favourite one for this season stays ‘’Mother + Founder’’ where we partnered with FemGems podcast and recorded a live podcast episode for them having Madeleine Gummer von Mohl (betahaus co-founder), Kristine Zeller (co-creater of ooshi period underwear) and Luisa Hoffman on the stage.

"We should fight for a more human-centered tech development’’

Every September, our co-founders take part in the Techfestival. in Copenhagen, spending a few days disconnecting from the daily life and focusing on creating a better, more human-centered tech future. This year the think tank which included our co-founders Madeleine and Max came up with the TechPledge. The Tech Pledge was made to emphasize the need for a new direction in tech. Similar to the Hippocratic oath for doctors, the Tech Pledge is a promise to make tech a force for good and ensure responsible and sustainable tech leadership. It’s a commitment to driving a new direction in technology.

"Startups are transforming European football as we know it.’’

One of the most exciting projects for betahausX this year (which is also continuing in 2020) is their new startup challenge called The Werder Lab - a global startup competition that aims to reimagine the way clubs like Werder work with athletes, fans and partners.



"You should leave time for the things you love most’’ 

This year couldn’t end without us having our favourite events - the end-of-the-year holiday party and the BETAPITCH Global Finals. On the 6th of December we saw the 9 finalists of the regional BETAPITCH competitions pitching in front of our jury. Congrats to Troy from Hamburg for winning the big prize.

We finished the year at our Holiday Party celebrating anything and everything at betahaus | Neukölln together with our members, friends of friends and our favourite artists from Passiflora LIVE, Tapete and Kotoe.

Love at The betahaus Holiday Party 2019


Thank you for being with us in 2019. It's been a crazy big year for us and it wouldn't been possible without your support, trust and the hard work of our amazing team. Have an amazing holiday time and we'll see you again in 2020.

betahaus
