Throughout the Workshop bases our guests enjoyed experts lectures on a variety of topics and skills. Tom Laterveer led an engaging discussion on how to lead a passionate, driven, and dedicated working environment, and Ernst Neumeister gave insights about why and how crowdfunding campaigns become successful. Mark Turrell showed guests how to turn networks into super powers to get things done. Outside in the Makers Yard Julia Kolm and Cecilia Hilmer from innovation agency Innoki gave a two-hour ‘fast forward’ design thinking workshop and the good people from MYO taught groups the fun in paper folding by creating their own lampshades. In the Innovation Garden there were all kinds of funky new tech gadgets, and Mr. Beammade incredible wood etchings through a mini laser in true Sci-Fi fashion.
On the 4th floor startups and investors enjoyed a well-spent day of business insights and networking at the BETAPITCH | global and Investors Day. The day was packed with talks that ranged in topics such as whether or not to seek investment, how to give back to the community, and how to ‘lose your soul to an accelerator or join a coworking’. Talks and panel discussions were led by investors from Axel Springer Plug ‘n Play, Deutsche Bahn, Airbus Bizlab, Kloeckner, Ergo and ENBW amongst others. Other friends on stage included SoundCloud and Kickstarter. Outside the building startups and investors were speeddating in fancy Audi cars, thanks to Welcome Project.
In the evening at BETAPITCH | global, seven international startup finalists pitched. The big winner of the night was Insulin Angel, who won a trip to Silicon Valley sponsored by Axel Springer Plug ‘n Play and a program at Stanford organized by BiTHOUSE! Hub:raum gave its prize of 5000 euros to startup Thingthing, and Dronamics snatched away a wildcard acceptance to Airbus Bizlab accelerator and a chance to pitch for the Kloeckner fund. Vienna Skill Smiths won six months of free coworking space at betahaus | Berlin, and BeeCanvas received the opportunity to pitch at Pirate Summit 2015. Congratulations to all the teams!
The evening got off to a smooth start with a BBQ and performances from musicians in betahaus’ community - including our own CEO Christoph Fahle on the saxophone. Later, in the frenzy of our after-party and alongside our ‘work hard, play hard’ partners of Business Punk, the crowd were given some energetic performances by international DJs and acts like Antopia, Peter Kirn, and Ain the Machine. They kept the dance floor grooving well into the night and we couldn’t get enough.
We’d like to give a shout out to our media partners Tech Berlin, The Hundert, Silicon Allee, Berlin Valley, Jobspotting and our party partners at Business Punk, and to our photographers Rian Davidson and Maansi Jain for capturing all the fun. You can check out the People In Beta Festival photos here, the BETAPITCH | global & Investors Day photos here, and the betabooth photos here.
Last but not least: many thanks to our sponsors without whom People In Beta 2015 wouldn’t have been possible: Axel Springer Plug ‘n Play, ERGO, Deutsche Bahn, Kloeckner, Hub:raum, Audi, Airbus Bizlab and Appchance

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!
