Mark 15 November in your calendar, because our biggest startup event is back! This year we're giving you the chance to make connections from every corner of the globe in one day, under one roof.

Every year Investors Day and BETAPITCH Global brings together startups and investors from all over the world. It’s the best opportunity to present your startup and meet potential partners. Here’s what you can expect at this year’s event.

Check out the Complete Program here!

INVESTORS DAY

Investors Day is all about creating opportunities for you and your startup. Dive into a day of curated meetings with potential investors and partners, panel discussions on the hottest topics and some serious networking. We've come up with interactive ways of matching you with the right partners to ensure you make the most of the day. Within Investors Day, you can also attend the Pitch Flip where we let the investors take the stage, convincing startups why they should work with them. You can also speed date with investors in cars or take to the open mic to spread your idea. Just make sure to sign up for match-making in advance!

This year's Investors Day will be a deep-dive into the subject of future city and emerging tech. Our panellists will discuss their first-hand experiences of re-shaping the urban landscape and tell you what you can expect for the future of city life. Key players from the global and local startup scene will all be there, so make sure to pack your business cards!

BETAPITCH GLOBAL

The search for the most innovative startups has taken us all over the world; it’s been sweaty, intense, and absolutely wonderful! From Kuala Lumpur to Lisbon to Seoul, the twelve finalists for this year’s BETAPITCH Global are coming from all over the world for an intense pitching battle in Berlin. The winner will leave with 5000€, a trip to Silicon Valley, and 6 months of betahaus membership.


AFTER PARTY

We'll finish the day in true Berlin fashion – with drinks, dancing, and music. After a long day on your best behavior, there's nothing like a good party to help you wind down. We promise this will be one to remember!

All community members can join the event for FREE. Make sure to save your spot here or grab your Investors ticket!

Here’s a wrap-up video from last years event and we'll see you on 15th!

OKAY BUT HOW IS BESPOKE SOUND DIFFERENT THAN PLAYING MY "DISCOVER WEEKLY’’ OR ANY OTHER AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED PLAYLIST ?

Well, both. Currently we offer the following two options: shorter publicly available Brand Playlists and long-form private Soundtracks for spaces. For both of them we work closely with the client to understand how sound fits into their brand DNA and what their audience is like.

We believe that the guests’ experience with a particular space doesn’t have to begin and end with their stay. The idea of the Brand Playlist is to be a public brand playlists designed to engage the customers before, during, and after their visit at a space. It’s always accessible for them and serves as a new, dynamic marketing channel.

The Soundtrack is slightly different. It takes sometimes up to weeks of work and is designed by a world-class artist, DJ, or tastemaker. For it we first work with you to develop a deep understanding of your business and style. Then we match you with the perfect artist, DJ, or tastemaker to create unique, always fresh playlists, custom tailored to match your brand. 

In both cases, we update them regularly based on guest habits and clients’ needs.

The way we engage with the music community is something really important for us and honestly, what makes us different than other background music providers. A lot of the background music providers out there have internal teams of maybe five or six DJs that do all of the music for their clients. We aim to connect with the local scene and always work with local DJs. There's some kind of magic in finding the exact right artists for the brand.

And on the flip side of it, when we hire artists, we make sure that the project is also inspiring for them and that they would be interested in participating. We always make sure to pay them well. The whole project creates for them a new income stream that they wouldn't have otherwise.

Yes! This was really fun. The objective with the betahaus "betabeer sounds" playlist was to showcase the community side of betahaus. There are so many cool, interesting people in the betahaus community and we thought a playlist could be a perfect way to not only help bring the community together but also show the diverse funkiness of the communities of Berlin and Neukölln, which is why Hazy Pockets, a longtime local Berlin DJ known for his eclectic mixes, was perfect for this project.

This playlist moves from bluesy 60s rock into surf and tropicalia, picking up momentum into Motown and onwards through some laid back disco tunes. Perfect for the betabeer events betahaus hosts monthly!


YOU’RE CURRENTLY ENJOYING THE SUN FAR FROM BERLIN. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE PLACES in berlin that YOU MISS THE MOST?

Oh, there are just so many! Like the Imren Grill for instance where you can find the best homemade Turkish food or Das Gift and Gordon which are both run by great music people. Kohelenquelle in Prenzleuer Berg is my favorite local bar (or rather kneipe). To satisfy my  techno / electronic records needs I always go to Hard Wax and one of my most special places is the Zions Kirche steeple, which has an awesome view of the city and a great Weinerei close by. 


You can see me around betahaus. Online, you can always check out my website and listen to our public playlists on Spotify. We’re also currently working on a collaboration with betahaus, so a special Playlist curated by is will very soon sound around the spaces in Kreuzberg and Neukölln.
