In 2002, former Ericsson datacoms engineer Luke Brennan founded a company called “Digidave” out of people he mostly met at parties. People that share the same interests in creating something that can make life a bit easier.
They were selling electronic devices on their website. Among these devices were wireless routers. As they figured out that people were buying more and more power supplies for the routers than routers itself, being the innovative startup they are, they used this information to shape themselves in a different and even more useful way. So, they all sat down and researched all the devices you need at home. All this work in order to help people overcome the headache of looking for replacement parts for their devices.
Back then, which is 4 years ago, this was 5% of their business.
Due to their user friendly interface where people can easily select the brand and the model this has increased to 95%.
Of course, that was a big thing! So the always-in-movement startup thought, “Why not spin out another brand that is all about power?”, which is why MyVolts, the “Power Supply Finder” was born in 2011.
Having paid attention at what their customers where buying (tons and tons of power supplies) and using that information, the team came to the conclusion that there is a way to save energy and make power supplies more efficient.
They gathered, that via USB you have a reasonable way of delivering power easily to a lot of different products.
The team created their very own MyVolt power supplies (PSUs), which are a solution to the problem of having a drawer full of unused cables you think you might use again but actually never will.
In addition to clearing out your drawer, these cables are also able to convert the voltage from 5 (which is normal for USB) to higher voltages.
It is a fresh way to help everyone through the jungle of cables without having to throw everything out.
“Making the world a little neater, everybody likes that”, says Luke.

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