Our Community Events are Online! Here's how to join in.

We’ve always believed that people flourish in the company of others. In collaboration with one another. Amongst community. Now is no different.

Over the years, our community has grown to include thousands of people spread across the world. People who escape somewhere warmer every winter and come back in the spring. Who change jobs but stop by for happy hours. Teams who's little startups grew too big for our space but who stay in our alumni network. Members who have since returned to their home countries but stay in touch. Who moved half way across the world, but come back for a visit every few years. People who still feel very much a part of our beta family, even though we don't see them every day.

If we’ve learned anything through all these transitions, it’s that physical space is only a very small part of what makes this a community. Technology gives us more access to one another (in the absence of in-person interactions) than we’ve ever had before. In this moment, we are facing the unprecedented and urgent challenge of COVID-19. But our role at betahaus isn't all that different than it was before. We're here to create community and facilitate connections for people who would otherwise be on their own.

We recently announced that our in-person community events will be on hold until further notice. We're standing behind the idea that anyone who can stay home right now, should stay home, in a fight to flatten the curve.

But that doesn't mean we can't virtually hang! We're bringing the best parts of this community online so you can stay connected even while staying at home. From webinars to online dance parties, here are some of the betahaus events that are going virtual.

Slack

Hey, members!

As long as we're working from home, we'll be moving the conversation online to our Slack community. Our members and community managers are still posting job opportunities, asking each other questions, and sharing the most important memes on the internet. Join the conversation here!

Office Hours

Our virtual community events are open to everyone!

betahaus | Office Hours are one-on-one consultancy sessions with experts from our community to our community. For the next few months, our in-house experts will be sharing their knowledge on everything from German tax code to crowdfunding via one-on-one online sessions.

Event holder: Varies

When: Daily

Registration: Explore the event calendar and contact the organizer directly to book an appointment

Did we mention this was going to be easy? 

Just kidding. We definitely did.

But, look. Your space will be fully-furnished from the day you move in. We’ll have the WiFi up-and-running and printers online. The meeting rooms will be ready to go. The kitchenette stocked with mugs and freshly brewed coffee. And you’ll have the support of our coworking team. They’ll provide everything from reception to package handling to space maintenance. They’ll get you oriented in the space and make sure you have what you need to get to work.

New office without the downtime.

betaFlow

Yoga has the power to regenerate our mind, body and soul. In a stressful environment, what our workspace often turns into, it's crucial to take breaks and focus on our emotional state and thoughts. The beta flows will help you calm your mind, connect with coworkers and get a better clarity throughout your day.

Every Wednesday, gather online for a mid-day or evening community yoga session with our dear friend Cynthia from Arrivé Yoga.

As you might imagine, things will be a bit, um... different this month. We’re cranking up the tunes and inviting you to BYOB and get down with us (or just come for a hang) from the comfort of your own home. It is a chance for people from near and far to party with us like the good old days – we’d love to see you there. 


Event holder: betahaus | Berlin

When: March 26th @ 6pm - 8pm

Registration: Join us on Facebook for the livestream.

Remote Collaboration Basics

We’ve come to a point where teams around the world must find a way to work remote. There is still a lot of talk about tools at the moment. But the real challenge lies in communication and agreements. Join a webinar hosted by Neon Sprints x betahaus | Hamburg which will introduce you to what you need for remote collaboration, what you need for it and what the first steps are to become a successful remote team.


Event holder: Neon Sprints x betahaus | Hamburg

betaSalon: Self Care in Times of Change

In 2019, betahaus started “betaSalon” to bring our community and network together to share on topics that are close to our hearts, ask the hard questions and exchange our experiences over a drink or two.


In 2020, betahaus continues this signature event as a series of online fireside chats. With a varying program of speakers, you can send us your topics and questions ahead of time, join us live from your couch, kitchen table or from the road. And should you not be able to make it on time - no worries! We are sharing the chats on demand in our community after the event.

Event holder: betahaus | Berlin

When: April 3rd

Registration: Link coming soon!


We're in this together! Watch our Events Calendar for updates as more of our events go online.
