A community with a space

A club to meet to make s**t happen (after COVID)

Betaworks Studios membership is a new kind of community, where a vast network of accomplished builders are supported by a physical space and online connections. We exist to help you feed your curiosity, challenge the status quo, and build your next big thing.Membership to Studios is not just about “growing your contact list”, but rather meeting and getting introduced to the right individuals with the right experience and expertise to support and advise you—and each other. Betaworks has spent over 10 years funding or incubating companies (like Giphy, Dots, Bit.ly and Chartbeat) developing a sizable network of builders, investors, and technologists. With Studios, we are growing this community even more. Are you our next member?

Your first step toward membership is your application.

Why join? 🍎🍏🍐🍊

Our members contain multitudes. They aren’t “just” founders, investors, engineers, designers, writers—most are doing many things and see themselves as a combination of identities. We are CEOs and CTOs, coders and storytellers, optimists, activists, and futurists. Our commonalities are passion to create, and our beliefs and values:

Building something great requires collaboration.
We’re here to learn and teach. Great ideas may come from within but they come alive when made together.

Technology and entrepreneurship are reshaping the world.
It’s clear now that technology is both the problem and the answer. How can we build better?

The future needs to be constructed.
Join the visionaries who are doing the shaping.

And So On

  • Build for people. Build from trust. Respect.See the forest for the trees.
  • Diversity, both literal and cognitive, is part of the strength of our community.
  • See the forest for the trees.
  • Challenge what you know.
  • Humans are weird. Tech should be a reflection of your needs but also your dreams, hopes, quirks, insecurities, fears and aspirations.

Members Say

"As an early-stage startup founder, I joined Betaworks Studios to find access to a community of fellow builders and makers. It’s been such a vibrant haven to take meetings, explore talks, and meet other members in person. Through the connections I’ve made here, I’ve met a handful of fellow founders and mentors that have been invaluable resources as we continue to grow our company."

—Madelin Woods, CEO and Founder, Walden

"The programming at Betaworks Studios is next level. Exposure to the inside track/minds of the tech industry’s leaders. I am a cynical mofo, but it is truly unparalleled versus any other kind of member's club or co-working space."

—Jules Ehrhardt, First Human, FKTRY

When you’re ready, apply for membership.

That’s the first step. Then, join for an event or book a visit. We’re here, doors open, every weekday 8am to 8pm in New York City’s revitalized Meatpacking District. It’s great. Stop by next time you’re visiting the Whitney or strolling The Highline. This is where Betaworks has called home since 2008.
