On 3 December we officially moved to Rudi-Dutschke-Straße 23. The historical building, which used to serve as the HQ for daily newspaper, taz, is now a five-floor coworking space full of ambitious startups, entrepreneurs of all kinds, freelancers and aspiring world-changers.
Not only we have changed location, but we've upgraded to five floors of coworking space, more event venues, terraces on every floor, a bigger betahaus | Café and even a rooftop terrace. The space is still undergoing renovation, but will be fully open at the start of 2019. Currently, we have four floors open for Pro Members and a huge Club Lounge area on the first floor.
If you're not a member yet, now could be the time to consider it. Our memberships start from 99€ per month and include access to free Community Events like our weekly betabreakfast, Office Hour consultancy sessions with experts from diverse backgrounds, access to Meeting Rooms, and so much more. We also offer Team Desks, and you'll find Berlin-based startups like The Collective, Jolocom, Functional Aestetics and Industrial Analytics already working here.
It's always been called out as Berlin's best coworking cafes, and we couldn't move without it. So after a couple of months of downtime, the betahaus | Café has been relocated to Rudi-Dutschke-Straße 23. The space has two floors, an extensive coffee list, and tons of lunch options if you have an informal meeting or just need to get away for a quick break.
In the new location we have four incredible Event Spaces where you can host your next seminar, lecture, workshop, or party. All of our spaces give a spectacular view over Berlin Mitte and one is even directly connected to the rooftop terrace. If you want to inquire about our new spaces, get in touch here.
We're having our betahaus Christmas Fest and housewarming party on 13 December and would love to see you there! RSVP here and come check out the space yourself! We'll have lots of glühwein, a live band, and a really awesome Christmas Raffle sponsored by our friends and partners from Coboat, UrbanSportsClub, Donkey Republik, Mykita, Coffee Circle and many more.
Toni: Honestly, we have skillsets that you don’t usually find in developers. Because we've had lives that were not just about computer science. I think to some extent this is what makes us different.
Martin: I believe one of the reasons why people pick us over other studios is because it can be very hard working with developers. If you’re not understanding their work, if the communication is not flowing, you, as a client can feel lost. We're easy to communicate with and we’re always open to feedback and we're open to discuss anything. In the end, after all iterations, if you say we need to start the website from scratch and that you don’t like the idea, we won’t take it personally.
Alex: Also, I think, since we all work as coding teachers, we are officially qualified to explain what coding is to people who don't code, which is actually really rare because a lot of developers, as Martin says, don't want to, or literally just don't know how to articulate what they're doing. Whereas we are trained in articulating what it is that we're doing, why it's meaningful and why it takes a certain amount of time.
Alex: Zimt & Mehl - the Turkish bakery around the corner. It’s just soo good.
Martin: Oh, there is this Italian restaurant called Ristorante del Arte
Tony: Oh, my God, this place is so funny. It looks like a pretty average Italian restaurant, but the whole interior design inside is just decorated in such a weird way. The entire place is covered in frescoes. They have crystal chandeliers and Easter bunnies. Some Greek columns. It has a different name on the menu, on the side and on the Internet. And it was an ex-shoe-store.
