BETAPITCH | Global and Investors Day will take place on the top floor of the ‘haus. The aim of Investors Day is to empower startup entrepreneurs by providing them with exposure to a targeted audience, in-depth feedback on their product as well as personal investment talks. There will be opportunities for the open exchange of knowledge and ideas through panel discussions, group sessions and personal meet-ups. 

Later in the evening our seven BETAPITCH | Global finalists (out of 300+ applicants!) will pitch their projects. They’ll compete for a trip to Silicon Valley (sponsored by Axel Springer Plug n’ Play), 5000€ cash (donated by hub:raum), a trip to Taipei (sponsored by HWTrek), plus a whole swag of betahaus benefits and services. To find out more, visit the BETAPITCH website.

The Innovation Market will be held in our outdoor area. Here you’ll find the most intriguing new tech and eco-inventions like the Mr Beam open source laser cutter, Paper John biodegradable backpacks, the mother of all music pedals MOD, Me-Mover - newest urban mobility device and much more.

We’re throwing the party of the year with our friends from Business Punk! Berlin's favourite cyber pop duo Anatopia will kick off the party followed by compelling audiovisual performance artist Peter Kirn and then Ain TheMachine who makes electronic music using body, voice, everyday objects and technology. Then we'll dance the night away with an awesome lineup of DJs!

Workshop Base 1, Workshop Base 2 and Workshop Base 3 are located on the 1st Floor of the 'haus. This is where you can take part in specialised workshops and inspirational discussions on topics such as meditation, mindfulness, creative transformation, SEO, PR, presentation skills and loads more!

The Makers Yard is made up of the Open Design City Wood Workshop, the Tech Lab and the outdoor area at the back of the 'haus. This is where you can get involved in hands-on workshops and learn from our resident gurus in woodworking, soldering, screen printing and other crafts.

An integral part of the People in Beta festival is providing a platform for some of Berlin's most exciting artists to share their vision. Throughout the courtyard, the cafe and the whole 'haus you can take yourself on a self-guided discovery tour of the curious and creative works of our talented featured artists.
