Startup Albania

When betahaus started nine years ago, we were one of the first coworking spaces in Europe. Digital nomadism and remote teams were in their early days and Berlin was just on the edge of becoming a startup city. We saw an opportunity to create something that wasn’t quite there yet. We were driven to be at the center of innovation, but getting people to actually come to our coworking space? Well, that was to be our next challenge.

FJALA E MINISTRIT MAJKO TEK DIALOGU PËR STRATEGJINË DHE PLANIN E VEPRIMIT PËR DIASPORËN DHE MIGRACIONIN

Ju falenderoj për ardhjen sot në këtë takim. Ai shënon hapjen e një diskutimi për një dokument të munguar që nga viti 2010. Ky ishte viti fundor i strategjisë së parë dhe të fundit për migracionin të shtetit shqiptar. Sot, Shqipëria ka gati gjysmën e popullsisë të…

Located in one of the busiest areas of Tirana, the space for betahaus | Tirana will be revitalized in an ongoing effort in 2018. Once renovated, the coworking space, event space, makerspace, restaurant, and café, will aim to serve Tirana’s budding community of freelancers, entrepreneurs, and other creative professionals. While the space will be locally managed, our team has committed to contributing everything we’ve learned about coworking and event management. The space will have its own BETAPITCH and its own version of the betahaus Academy. Rather than just looking good, it will be designed to facilitate the same open, collaborative atmosphere that has been so fundamental to our space in Berlin. We plan to have our hands in the project every step of the way, both in an official sense (business plans, training, etc.) and also in a more conceptual way (vibe, style, etc.) while allowing for adaptations to local culture and expectations of a workspace.

The construction works of the building for betahaus l Tirana are planned to be finished by September this year and the official opening date will be in the Q1 of 2019. In order to connect with the ecosystem and introduce betahaus to startups and entrepreneurs in Albania, we’re organizing a Coworking Week in Tirana from October 4-7th this year. Investors, business development experts, and leading startups are going to host workshops and connect with the audience. There is also BETAPITCH Tirana, which will give a stage to great ideas and entrepreneurs. We’re looking forward!

It has always been at the core of our business to empower entrepreneurship. We have no doubt that the next months will be busy, but it is with great excitement that we take a leap into this emerging market. We look forward to watching as betahaus | Tirana becomes a hub for entrepreneurship, creativity, and innovation. We hope you’ll join us there when the door finally opens in 2019!

Tirana greeted us with sunny weather, a vibrant city atmosphere, excellent Balkan food, and a little chaos here and there to remind of the city’s commitment to authenticity and freedom. Not only does Tirana have one of the youngest urban populations in Europe, but it’s slated to be our newest home city!

STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT

MAKING THE RIGHT DECISION IN THE REGARDS OF PRODUCTION, NEED ASSESMENT, LOCATION AND REAL ESTATE.

The first official event at Coworking Week was BETAPITCH – our global startup competition, which takes place in cities all around the world. BETAPITCH is one of our favourite recurring events because it brings together key players from local startup ecosystems and helps us understand the challenges local startups face as the endeavor to enter the global market. This year was our second round of BETAPITCH in Tirana, and the event had a level of participation that exceeded our expectations. As Iva Jankovic, COO of betahausX explained:

FINANCE

LEARN HOW TO SET UP A BOOKKEEPING SYSTEM, MANAGE YOUR CASH FLOW AND PREPARE FOR TAX TIME.

Saturday and Sunday were focused on sharing knowledge and helping startups grow. There were presentations and consultancy sessions with international experts on startup development.

PEOPLE

UNDERSTAND YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES WHEN DEALING WITH STAFF, CONTRACTORS AND CUSTOMERS.

Our final event at Coworking Week was an Investor’s Talk with Michael Gold (CRIMSON CAPITAL), Ivana Stankovic (South Central Ventures), Shkelzen Marku (YSB Balkans) and Igor IZotov (betahausX) who moderated the discussion. The talk centered around the business potential of Albania and other Eastern European country’s and challenges they might experience in growth.

During Coworking Week, we also had the chance to check in on the construction of the soon-to-be betahaus l Tirana.

Betahaus l Tirana will be the first official coworking space in Tiranaand is planned to be open its doors at the beginning of 2019.
