The Hardware Revolution is happening right here! Two weeks ago we at the BerlinHardwareAccelerator.com organised the first Hardware Pitch which took place during the packed People in Beta Festival and it was off the hook!
An all star cast of jury members joined us to support young teams and give out awesome prizes worth over €10.000.
On Friday the 27th of September, the teams arrived from all over Europe to join the pitch training which would higher their chances to be understood and therefor to win. Few teams were already veterans in pitching, others were scared to get on stage but all of them highly appreciated the help of the pitchalicious Bianca Praetorius, who provided them with the best pitch training money can buy!
Each pitch was presented to perfection, with no team going over time and most issues being addressed. The jury was impressed and so was the audience. The winners of the night ended up being PocketEthernet – a pocket sized network analysis tool! These guys have won $3000 in Amazon Web Services. The next winner is Rockatoo – a helmet audio system and runner-ups winning $500 USD in Elance Credit as well as 6 months in betahaus residency and access to hy!.
The runner ups were PumpTire – a self-inflating bicycle tube and BabyWatch – an ultrasound device to analyze unborn babies vitals.
We all had a great time and would like to give a special kudos to the wonderful betahaus team, Elance, Hy! and Amazon - without you this would not have been possible.

The move is our third big announcement of 2018 following the news that we’re be expanding our operations with betahaus | Tirana and managing coworking for Berlin’s new blockchain space, Full Node.
The idea behind betahaus was never to be just a coworking space. We wanted to create a platform where people of our generation could thrive personally and professionally. We’ve always thought we could do this on a much bigger scale and we’re thrilled to see it happening. We’re excited about what we’re able to learn from this move, not just for betahaus, but for the future of coworking in Europe.
We’re sure you have a lot of questions about what’s coming next.
We want to hear from you! Email us at email@example.com or join us for a closed Town Hall where we’ll answer all of your questions and talk through any concerns. We’ve also started members-only page for FAQs, resources, and important dates about the move (check your inbox!).
We've got some big changes ahead of us, but one thing's for sure: we're so glad to have you with us for the ride!
We're looking forward to this new challenge, and will keep you updated along the way. Get in touch with any questions you might have about Full Node!
