News: We Are Up to Something...

We have been a bit silent about betapitch the last two months... we were busy planning. Actually we still are, but we are ready to confirm some stuff that we already mentioned in April: BETAPITCH is growing. Big time!

Over the next twelve months we are planning six local pitches in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, Vienna, Sofia in Barcelona.They will all go according to protocol, the way y'all know it: The winner gets a team at the local (awesome!) Coworking space plus a bootstrappackage to help the winner get started. Except: this time the winners will also get to take part in betapitch | global! In June 2013 first and second place from all the local pitches will compete against each other, for a six-month customized tour through the coworking spaces of their dreams, a package and other excellent extras.

So: Its time to get excited, get your team together, think hard and come up with awesome ideas. Its still early enough to become the global betahaus startup superstar..

In the last few weeks the event spaces at betahaus | Neukölln were packed with cool events. We opened up the Hide-Out with BETAPITCH Berlin 2019 in the start of April. The hotly contested pitching event saw 12 startups reveal their visions for improving accessibility in public transport. Here’s a recap video from the event.

On 27th of April we celebrated 10 years in beta. For our coworking anniversary we transformed betahaus | Neukölln into a party venue and an art exhibition. Artists from our community filled The Basement with art, The Garden was full of fun activities and inside in The Club we had our favourite DJ's playing. In case you have missed it, here’s a recap video from the event.

We also welcomed the LongHash Crypto conference and enjoyed 3 days of workshops and panel discussions on all things blockchain. And speaking about conferences, our friends from GitHub also chose the betahaus | Neukölln spaces for the workshop day of their biggest event - The Satellite conference. More than 600 developers, executives, and industry leaders from around the world came to

After you’ve taken care of your paperwork and you’ve signed up both in Bürger- and Finanzamt, you are all set up to start working. One of the best ways to get integrated into the city fast, meet like-minded people, and even find clients is by working from a coworking space. There are tons of benefits for freelancers and luckily Berlin has a lot to offer in this way. A coworking space is a physically collaborative shared workspace, which brings all kinds of creatives and entrepreneurs together. It’s a perfect place for startups, freelancers, digital nomads and even corporates searching for innovation. And it’s the biggest advantage towards the typical office space is that it pushes a collaborative exchange between its members and facilitates the creative process and networking.
