Our mission is to enable HealthTech founders to launch successful companies faster. Through our network of service partners, corporates and investors we accelerate the time-to-market and reduce operational risks.

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.


The idea for KAPSLY really came to life during the EU vs. Virus hackathon in 2021.

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.

Since 2023, the KAPSLY Ecosystem includes a Business Angel Club (Non-Profit) to support Startups with funding when working with our KAPSLY Ventures Service Partners.
