Why we went to Albania (and not to something more obvious, like Barcelona)?
Max says that "Albania is the country in Europe with the youngest population. It has an inspiring cultural heritage, which is a unique combination of Orient and Occident. In Tirana there’s a good vibe and there’s a spirit all around that gives you the feeling something big could happen soon."
Also, we will probably be opening a new betahaus in this beautiful space!
Madeleine explains that we “Usually meet once a year with all the local teams for a "betahaus | Summit" where we work on our global milestones. Such summits are always very intense and packed with work sessions. In 2015 our Berlin team grew in highspeed and betahaus | Hamburg welcomed two new CEO’s. For both reasons we felt the need for some off-time. Time for everyone to get to know each other a bit better on a personal level. So we decided to spend three days of doing fun things and add a few inspiring talks on the side!”
And Christoph tops it:
“Whenever we do those getaways with our betahaus teams I realise that spending quality time with each other is one of the most important things we have to do as company and as a team. We need it to work together well and to be good hosts to our members. Of course we do some formal things, like workshops and keynotes, but the things that happen before and after have much more impact. Getting to know each other, having meaningful conversations and learning of each other’s dreams and fears is what’s making us a good team. Then when we get back home, there is a slight increase in smiles and heaps of new stories to refer to in our day-to-day jobs. It makes things much more easygoing and joyful. Ultimately I believe we should take on tour the whole betahaus community with us.”
Long story short: We had a blast and can't wait for next year's betahaus camp. Want to share your team building experiences and beliefs with the betahaus community? Let us know! We'd love to hear from you.
Want to get to know your betahaus coworkers and our betahaus | Berlin team a bit better? Let's meet at our betabeer upcoming Thursday, October 29th, 6 to 9 pm (members only). We'll all be there, because we're planning to celebrate the opening of our 2nd floor! Ideas for an afterparty are very welcome (shoot us an e-mail). Hope to see you there!
Don’t forget to check our Event page for more events coming up.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
