Deskmag needs you!

Our friend Deskmag is crowdfunding! Deskmag is the biggest coworking magazine in the world and platform that wants to help improve coworking and give easy access to a ton of valuable stories and statistics.

Deskmag is appealing to you, all the coworking fans to support them! In return they will provide you another yearly global coworking survey, which is an exhaustive study on many aspects of the coworking world. You will be able to access those surveys and use them for your own needs! The second big goal of the campaign is creating a coworking library, the coworking wiki where you'll be able to share or read articles, surveys or studies on website and everything for free. And if you belong to the hardware generation which likes having something in their hands, deskmag offers the coworking market report magazine.

So, as we all love coworking - otherwise we wouldn´t be here - we can understand the passion and can value the knowledge that Deskmag is providing. Now it needs you to help them to keep Deskmag alive!

How you can do to help them:

-       Get the Freelancer´s bible!

-       Get the Coworking Market report!

-       Get your ad in their magazine!

-       Get a six months cobot starter kit!

via supporting the crowdfunding campaign.

Few days left, hurry up, support deskmag and picking your goodie!

More announcements and further information you can find in our beta calendar!

Orietta: When we started looking for a place I was already involved in the betahaus community. Working from previous betahaus locations and attending the community events, I already knew a lot of people in the 'haus ...

Joey: Yes, I remember on the first day we came to betahaus Orietta was like ‘’Oh, hey! Hi! Hey, how are you doing? Hi!'' giving high-fives to everybody and we were like: What is going on, why does she know everybody?!

Orietta: Well, the vibe in betahaus is just super easy going. You directly feel that you can meet people easily. If you go to the kitchen for example and just ask ''Hey how are you, what are you working on?''. We made many new contacts too.

Claudius: What makes it nice here is that people are enjoying being here and working on their projects.

Claudius: The truth is, we could probably afford an office for the same price, but that would put us between these four walls, which put you into a box, much harder to exit and to connect with new people. We went for a Team Desk because here we have so much more space and everything seems much more connected. You can easily meet people.

Orietta: And it’s just so spacious here. We have this super nice garden.

Claudius: I like being focused on my work but I also like if someone disturbs me from time to time. It helps when the door opens. In an office we would work in a whole different way. Here Gillord (Coworking Manager) is coming in everyday, giving me a hug, telling me about his workout .. that’s the main reason - the personal connection.

The day in betahaus starts with a hug and ends with a hug. The time in between is pretty much spent on doing what you love.

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.
