Betaworks has been building products like bit.ly, GIPHY, Tweetdeck, and Dots for over ten years. It’s done so through developing and ritualizing a few core tenets about how tech products are best built.  As product building and development has grown to become a large part of business culture, there are still few opportunities for creators to share ideas and build alongside investors, technologists, and artists who are similarly focused on reinventing our future. Enter betaworks Studios, a club for builders. Applying the best practices of betaworks to an inclusive tech community at large, Studios is a new kind of space where builders can collaborate, think, and envision humane tech products. Join this conversation to learn more about  John, Daphne, and the new betaworks Studios.
