Loopc.am

Tor Rauden Källigsten presented his start-up loopc.am at the last betapitch. Like actually all the ideas presented, Tor’s also seemed pretty interesting to us, which is why we did this interview with him. In general: loopc.am is a social platform for sharing animated .gif images....but let’s see what Tor has to say about it.

Interview by Till Wagner.

Where are you from and what did you work on before loopc.am? I'm from Stockholm originally. Prior to Loopcam I explored the world doing jeans in North Korea (nokojeans.com) and produced techno with Boeoes Kaelstigen (boeoeskaelstigen.co.uk).

How did you come to Berlin?Just before I moved to Berlin I lived in Seoul, South Korea and experienced how living in the future is like. I wanted to go back to Europe and Berlin was the natural choice of city. It's a city to be positively surprised and confused by, on regular basis.

What is the idea behind loopc.am and how did you come up with it?Loopcam is technically defined as a very simple stop motion animator. It uses the well reknown animated GIF-format, which is compatible with all platforms. And it's designed to 

let people share what they're doing in creative ways, fast and easy.I've loved these cute gif-animations that's been glorifying the internet since decades — from crappy flames in 3D to hilarious scenes taken from movies. But there wasn't a simple way to share your own life using this brilliant format. That's were Loopcam was born.

Where do you see loopc.am in the broad field of social media?A Loopcam loop is richer than a photo. But faster to shoot and consume than a video clip. And last but not least, loops are funny and addictive. We think there's something utterly unique and exciting in loop based communication.

How do you promote loop.cam and get it widely used?Loopcam has been growing organically. We built a very basic prototype and launched early. People loved it. The process has then being about learning from our users how to take it further. It has been a recipe for success so far, and will most likely will be the way we keep on doing our stuff further on.

What are your plans for the future of loopc.am?Becoming the hub of LOL :—)

The new space is six stories spread out across 2800 sqm. We’ll be renovating the building with our members in mind, so here’s what we can promise:

  • 5 Floors of Coworking Areas
  • Event Spaces
  • More Meeting Rooms
  • More Team Rooms
  • More Call Boxes
  • A Rooftop Terrace
  • A Café

We'll be updating The Move landing page with photos as we have them, so watch out for that!

when do you need a notary?

We’ll open the doors of our new space between mid-August and mid-September 2018. We plan to begin moving in July to ensure that the space is functional and comfortable by the time you get there. Bottom line, we’ll do everything we can to make the move as seamless as 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 themove@betahaus.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!

Not a blockchain startup but looking for a coworking space? Be sure to check out the flexible membership options at betahaus!

Finally, You describe your target group as LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability), which is a very niche market. Can you tell us more about what type of people they ARE and what theY value? What's some advice you can share to other startups targeting this market?
