Spanning from Lebanon, Iran, the United Arab Emirates, and Egypt the entrepreneurs are here for two weeks to work their way through entrepreneurship fundamentals such as design thinking, lean startup, prototyping, and market validation.
The first week was jam packed with training modules, hands-on workshops, prototyping labs, trips to town for field research, 1-1 mentoring sessions as well as numerous meet-ups with the local entrepreneurship community. After a relaxing weekend we are now ready for week two where the participants will dive deeper into developing their business ideas.
“Mighty Labs is a launchpad which helps me to know the different aspects of my startup more deeply and guides me to improve my design and development.” — Ahmad
“The program offers a solid kick-off plan for early-stage startups like ours. From managerial skills to rapid-prototyping, everything is covered in a coherent manner. I feel now we have the confidence to call ourselves ‘startups’!” — Navid
Mighty Labs was created to aid young entrepreneurs in their first steps of building and launching their ventures, right here in betahaus. We’re excited about the launch of our own in-house pre-accelerator and also excited to work alongside these incredible, aspiring entrepreneurs from the MENA region.

Claudius: Design is the core of what we do and what we’re all passionate about, but hardly our only focus. Design, at LAUDO, stands more for designing a whole strategy, often very close connected with marketing. We’re developing websites and apps for our clients, but also help them reach their target audience through SEO, Google ranking developing newsletter systems, print brochures etc.
Claudius: A lot of other companies are seeing themselves as a service provider and don’t really question what their client wants and why. We pay very close attention if the work we provide for a client is in line with our personal values and vision. It’s not just delivering a product to the client, getting the pay check and leaving, but also building relationships with clients and collaborating. Because they are often our doors to new opportunities.
‘’We see LAUDO as an airport, where the clients are our gates to new guests, new perspectives and new potential clients. It happens all the time that whoever we’re working for, from there we get a new project, which wasn’t planned before. So we open up a new gate. That’s how we were able to grow and why good connection with our clients is so crucial for us.’’
Orietta: I think one thing that make us stand out on the market and our strength number one is the team. We’re a small team and we all look in the same direction and have the same approach and vision. That makes the communication go smoothly.
Joey: Another thing is that we have a very hands-on approach. We are the guys, who say: ‘’Okay, let’s do it’’. That’s our culture.
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.
