Countdown to 5 Years of betahaus: betapitch | global

On 27 April, we're throwing a big birthday to celebrate our 10 years in beta and shape a utopian future together with our community. Wondering what UtopiaX means, what you'll find in the Zen Zone and which artists are exhibiting in the The Basement? Here's what we've got lined up for you at our 10 Years in beta party!

Hey, Festival-goers!

Teshia here, with my can't-be-missed pick for this Saturday.

We have been working round the clock to bring you a full-to-the-brim 5 years of betahaus festival overflowing with talks, workshops and music! Naturally, you might be looking at packed line-up with wide eyes -- your excitement building as you consider your path through a day that is truly and unequivocally beta. But I can't help but fill you in on one of the major must-see events: betapitch | global!

For those of you not privvy to the beta brand of startup competitions, betapitch local events happen all over Europe in Berlin, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Sofia and Vienna, to name a few. The pitch competition bring together start-ups to pitch their ideas in front of a panel of judges and the chance to win prizes that will aid in the launching of their companies. Sounds pretty cool, right?

Well... for an event as big as 5 years of betahaus we couldn't stop there, could we? betapitch | global will be the king of all betapitch events as you watch the rockstar winning pitchers from all the continent-wide events battle it out for ultimate bragging rights (and great prizes).

Who will be there you ask? Here's a sneak peak at who will be pitching this Saturday:

  • Viblast - A new platform for viewing videos. It works by establishing a secure layer of communication between viewers of a video stream. As users consume content, they also share tiny bits of the very same content with other authorized users in a peer-to-peer fashion - significantly reducing the demand for centralized resources.
  • Drystorm - A developer service to create great looking, fully featured, well tested web apps in a matter of minutes, saving money, time and effort.
  • LUUV - A camera Stabilizer that enables you to document your adventures shake-free.
  • Arthesis - Fresh designs for making stylish, custom 3D printed covers for people with leg prosthesis.
  • EasySize - A service for defining clothing sizes and decreasing the number of returns for online shoppers.
  • Rescued Ideas - Bringing the old music experience back to the present. The product Basslet is a wristband that lets you feel the bass and beats of music. It works alongside headphones, adding a visceral sensation.

The winner will be judged by our expert panel made up of none other than Marita Roebkes, Jörg Reinboldt, Thomas Madsen-Mygdal, Jeff Lynn and Gaurav Signh.

The prizes include a fully-sponsored trip trough the Silicon Valley provided by Axel Springer Plug n’Play. There is a real cash prize of 5.000€ from hub:raum. The winner also gets six months of coworking space at betahaus | Berlin and an introduction to the media, investors and mentors in the betahaus network. Also in the game, 1.000€ of Elance credit.

Can't wait to see you there!

 

This event is part of the 5 years of betahaus Festival. Buy a ticket on Eventbrite for the betahaus festival and check out the festival program here.

Have you met .. the Softblobs? Since moving back to Berlin from the US, Gesine Krätzner has been making strange creatures out of fabric that she calls Softblobs. They are cute, random, and they'll be waiting in The Basement if you want to try playing around with them.

From toys made of fabric, we’re moving onto wooden sculptures. Matt Danko knows how to bring wood to life and does it amazingly in his free time. In The Basement, he’ll show his latest furniture pieces and sculptures.

In the same room as Matt, you’ll find Lisa Büscher, who has prepared for us a hyper realistic sculpture presentation that gives it the touch of the extreme, surrealistic and absurd. She de- and reconstructs and reorganizes human bodies like Utopia does society.


In our Photo & Video room you will find works from Collette Pomerleau and Ocean.Now.

Colette is a Berlin-based creative working in photography, art direction and set design. Through her visuals she explores intimacy and anonymity. The space that falls somewhere in between.

Ocean. Now! is a collective that accelerates ocean protection. They work with different types of art to motivate our society to protect the Ocean -Now!

In the early afternoon, based in The Garden, you’ll meet Amaury BOUQUET. He’s a Berlin-based French artist from Saint Maur des Fossés, who has a background in social innovation and loves to play with symbols in his works. At 10 Years in beta, he’ll do his special Humanist Tarot readings from 4-6pm.

Parallel to him, also in The Garden, Sebastian Olivares will be painting live a special Mandala created for betahaus. Sebastian is a Berlin-based visual artist who specializes in painting mandala murals and has painted murals in Germany, Chile, Australia and Thailand.

Throughout the day ilan katin will be putting the party vibes onto a mural, specially created for betahaus. He's a Neukölln-based artist with experience in visual work, both static and performative, graphic design, illustration, comics, installations, animation and live video.

We think this one speaks for itself. If you need a little glitz or glitter to get you into the party spirit, come early and we'll do the rest.



Last, but not least, special thanks to our lovely partners who are helping us making this event happen.
Pilsner Urquell and Fritz Cola for the drinks, Emmy, Drivy, FrameRight, CoffeeCircle, Dream Facilitation, Moruga and BioWine for supporting our Prize Draw and our media partners from Silicon Allee, ASK HELMUT, Creative City Berlin and TechCode.
