Making the World a Little Neater

MyVolts embodies what a startup stands for.

But let us start with their actual story.

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.

Make sure to join our Facebook Event and RSVP on Eventbrite, so we can put your name into our Happiness Jar. This birthday bash is all about our community, and together with our partners we've prepared a special Prize Draw.

Throughout the whole night, you will find the rooms of The Basement filled with art pieces from our favorite Berlin-based creatives. From illustrations to paintings to wooden sculptures and installations - we've made sure to host an inclusive Berlin-like mix of all things art. Let us introduce to you to some of the artists, who you will meet down in The Basement:

Have you met .. the Softblobs? Since moving back to Berlin from the US, Gesine Krätzner has been making strange creatures out of fabric that she calls Softblobs. They are cute, random, and they'll be waiting in The Basement if you want to try playing around with them.

From toys made of fabric, we’re moving onto wooden sculptures. Matt Danko knows how to bring wood to life and does it amazingly in his free time. In The Basement, he’ll show his latest furniture pieces and sculptures.

In the same room as Matt, you’ll find Lisa Büscher, who has prepared for us a hyper realistic sculpture presentation that gives it the touch of the extreme, surrealistic and absurd. She de- and reconstructs and reorganizes human bodies like Utopia does society.

In our Photo & Video room you will find works from Collette Pomerleau and Ocean.Now.

Colette is a Berlin-based creative working in photography, art direction and set design. Through her visuals she explores intimacy and anonymity. The space that falls somewhere in between.

Ocean. Now! is a collective that accelerates ocean protection. They work with different types of art to motivate our society to protect the Ocean -Now!

In the early afternoon, based in The Garden, you’ll meet Amaury BOUQUET. He’s a Berlin-based French artist from Saint Maur des Fossés, who has a background in social innovation and loves to play with symbols in his works. At 10 Years in beta, he’ll do his special Humanist Tarot readings from 4-6pm.

Parallel to him, also in The Garden, Sebastian Olivares will be painting live a special Mandala created for betahaus. Sebastian is a Berlin-based visual artist who specializes in painting mandala murals and has painted murals in Germany, Chile, Australia and Thailand.

Throughout the day ilan katin will be putting the party vibes onto a mural, specially created for betahaus. He's a Neukölln-based artist with experience in visual work, both static and performative, graphic design, illustration, comics, installations, animation and live video.

We think this one speaks for itself. If you need a little glitz or glitter to get you into the party spirit, come early and we'll do the rest.

Last, but not least, special thanks to our lovely partners who are helping us making this event happen.
Pilsner Urquell and Fritz Cola for the drinks, Emmy, Drivy, FrameRight, CoffeeCircle, Dream Facilitation, Moruga and BioWine for supporting our Prize Draw and our media partners from Silicon Allee, ASK HELMUT, Creative City Berlin and TechCode.
