Investors' Day is designed for you to meet with everyone who can help you get to the next level. Investors, potential distribution and industry partners, mentors, experts, and other key players from the global and local startup scene will gather at betahaus Berlin. You’ll meet them all through various interactive formats such as speed dating, private sessions, and panel discussions.

We’ve also invited Future Mobility Camp to hold their event at betahaus. It’ll be filled with expert panels, keynotes, and pitches by key players and decision makers from the mobility and logistics sectors for anyone innovating in this field.

In the evening, eight of the world’s best startups will compete for the BETAPITCH Global trophy. The competing startups have been selected by local juries in Tirana, Vienna, Sofia, Hamburg, Jönköping, Mostar, Cairo and Lisbon. This years global contestants are Tikapps (Tirana), Test My Bot (Vienna), VRET Solutions (Mostar), Cido (Hamburg), Trustcruit (Jönköping), VRET(Mostar), Pixellion (Cairo), Placeme (Lisbon), and Compocket (Istanbul). Meet the startups competing in BETAPITCH Global!
They're fighting for a Grand Prize of €5,000, a trip to Silicon Valley, and 6 months of betahaus membership. Audience members are encouraged to give feedback and grill the contestants – your input will help the jury make this tough decision!

It's going to be a fun night for startups and investor's alike. Go ahead and read more about Investors' Day & BETAPITCH Global and we hope to see you there!
Toni: Currently, we’ve somehow ended up in this niche of building a lot of internal tools for startups and teams. But this is not the only thing we want to do. What I like about it is that we’re starting projects from scratch and we have full control over them.
Martin: The first project we worked on was a tool for a large scale real estate development company. What they needed was a tool for their Sales people - to be able to mark their different spots and locations at different stages of the sales funnel. So we created a tool that helps them in this process.
Toni: And this one actually served as a starting point for the tool we’ve developed for betahaus, which aims to allow the Sales and Management team to see which team rooms are occupied right now, which ones are free or will be occupied in a few weeks or months, so no double bookings appear.
Alex: These two projects were more focused on real estate, let’s say, but we’ve also done more design-heavy projects like the one we did for Artique which is an online artists agency. For them, we built a whole website and an online system to present their artists starting only from their logo. It had to be very flexible, because the artists needed to be able to edit their own profiles, putting their resume, changing colours.
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.
