KAPSLY Story and Team

The term KAPSLY is derived from the Swabian word “Käpsele”, which is used to describe a person that just had a bright idea. Hence, KAPSLY is the ignition pad for smart people with bright ideas.

We focus on supporting healthtech founders and professionalising the relationships between startups and venture builders.
Our speciality lies in service for equity compensation models and ‘build your business now, pay later’ methods.


The idea for KAPSLY really came to life during the EU vs. Virus hackathon. Vincent always thought that people should have easy access to become co-owners of the companies they work for and benefit from the success. Originally the idea was to create a marketplace where freelancers could simply work for equity and receive tokens for their work, that could be traded and finally be redeemed at an exit. Maybe one day this vision will still come alive :D
