Our All-Time Favorite Blog Posts | The Move Edition

People keep diaries, but we keep this Magazine. Digging through our blog post archives we found some real treasures, written since the beginning of betahaus back in 2009. We've picked some of our favorites to show you where we started, how we've grown, and why we (still) love our community as much as we did on day one.


As if the CEO’s weren't busy enough during the early years of betahaus, they were also responsible for writing blog posts. 

Going through our archives we found everything from a short note from Madeleine after our 5th anniversary explaining the reasons why she loves betahaus and a post where Max compared betahaus to a kid saying: "Watching your kid growing up can be a pleasure and a pain at the same time. Its first steps leave you choked up with emotion, and the first crash with a skateboard can cause a nervous breakdown."

Watching your kid growing up can be a pleasure and a pain at the same time. Its first steps leave you choked up with emotion, and the first crash with the skateboard can cause a nervous breakdown.

Go back even further and we came across this post by Christoph where he shares the story behind the betahaus logo and explains why it's perpetually in beta.

Meet Our Community

Last year, we partnered with ArtConnect to publish an interview series highlighting some of our dearest members. Without these members, our community would never be as vivid as it is. 

One of the earliest interviews was with Lubomila Jordanova, the founder of Plan A – the first donation platform in the fight against climate change. You might recognize her from her big smile and her distinctive Bulgarian accent. In this post, she shares her ideas on climate change and tells us why there is no Plan B for our planet!

The next interview in the series was with Lenny Leiter – filmmaker and the founder of Deskish. In his interview, he described Dekish as a visual online playground for creative people and elaborates on how his filmmaking has influenced his startup. When he's not on our blog, you're most likely to see Lenny running around with his camera gear, and he even created a short movie about our community (which will come out very soon!).

While at first, you might not think that becoming an entrepreneur and a ceramic atelier have much in common, Elizaveta Barsegova will prove you wrong. Once on our team at betahaus, Elizaveta now works as a creative designer and  the founder of brsg Keramik. In this interview, she shares her unique perspective on where creativity and entreprenuership intersect.

Speaking of creativity, there was one member who moved in and built a music studio. Diego Ain aka AinTheMachine is a Brazilian composer and producer with a clear goal: to transform the way we interact with music. He explains Musica Biotronica, which is music without instruments, the four elements (body, voice, everyday objects, and technology), and gives us insight into his creative process in this interview.

Twice a week, there is a Community Run at betahaus, led by Jon Sykes. Jon, the self-proclaimed "European Brit", is the founder of Us Berlin and Racemappr. This feature addresses his strong passion for running and racing himself, and this is how he ended up creating Racemappr, the platform to help anyone discover their next challenge.

Last but not least, we interviewed perhaps the world's only "dream facilitators" - Luiza Arcushin. She might not be in tech, but she’s innovative as they comes. As Luiza explains, "Dream Facilitation is an empowering consultancy for people who want to investigate, plan and implement projects to fulfill their life purpose." 

Going through all these old blog posts reminds us once again exactly where we started and how much we love our community. We're more than excited to see what the Move will bring into the next chapter and look forward to seeing which entrepreneurs and world-changers join us for the ride.
