Trademob is one of the leading mobile advertising DSPs. The distinctive feature is the intelligent combination of retargeting of existing users and acquisition of new users. Via the RTA traffic Trademob reaches over a billion users worldwide.
The dynamic retargeting enables advertisers to show their users personalized banners where the last product viewed or similar products are presented. This advertisement feature significantly increases the conversion rate and thus the user-LTV. The new user acquisition product allows advertisers to find users similar to their most active or revenue-generating ones. A big advantage is the possibility to blacklist existing users so that only new potential users are approached. Trademob’s data-driven and smart combination of the retargeting and user acquisition product increases the ROI significantly for both campaign types.

betahaus is a coworking space in Berlin, Hamburg, Sofia and Barcelona.
At betahaus | Berlin you can work from Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm. If you book the 24/7 extra you can even work weekends and during the night. We’ve envisioned a space that functions as a combination of a Vienna-style coffee house, a library, a home office, or a university campus. We combine the best aspects of these locations, and use them to slowly build the idea of betahaus.
Since January 2009, we have been operating in a formerly state-owned space on Prinzessinnenstraße, close to Moritzplatz in the heart of Kreuzberg. Our team consists of highly talented people from different disciplines, such as design, architecture, and more. At betahaus, we seek to implement our own ideas from work and life, as well as to invite other designers to exhibit, test, and further develop their ideas and prototypes in our space. Who knows what may emerge from this flow of ideas…
At betahaus, we offer areas for quiet, concentrated work, as well as plenty of communicative space where you can make a phone call, or simply think aloud. Apart from separate meeting rooms, a large event space, a fablab and our café on the ground floor for relaxed entertainment, we have a co-working space of approximately 1500 square metres. Of course, we provide access to printers, scanners, and free Wi-Fi – all of that should be a given!
