Values are no longer created in traditional offices. Added value is created in different locations, at different times, in changing team constellations and without permanent employment. This new type of work is always seeking new real and virtual places. Open, digitally networked and collaborative workspaces are needed that are flexible and serve as incubation platforms for networking, innovation and production.
Since 2009, about 200 freelancers from various fields work in betahaus: graphic artists, programmers, photographers, architects, designers, academics, lawyers, NGOs, translators, video artists, journalists and bloggers. A space of 2,000 square metres is dedicated to innovation, creativity, events and professional work. It lives up to the demands and enhances the opportunities of independent creatives and knowledge workers.
