Dear Companists,

In the spring it was clear that the Nepos tablet was ready for the market - and presentable. We had functioning prototypes and nothing stood in the way of production except the lack of initial financing. That is why we both launched the campaign on Companisto and started to present Nepos, our vision, and our product to the public. We were at CEBIT and TOA and invited media representatives to visit us in Berlin.

In the last few weeks, we repeatedly received confirmation that our concern has social relevance and has been met with great interest. The many good conversations with journalists also reinforced this impression. We would like to use this update to draw your attention to some press releases that have resulted from these meetings:

At the beginning of June, I had the opportunity to talk about our business model and how senior citizens use the Internet and technology. The "DIE WELT kompakt" then introduced me as a "startup hero" in its print edition. The journalist's interview can be read online on and on Grü






In late May, presented innovative products designed to make life easier for many people in the future under the bold headline "So hilft die Zukunft" (This is How the Future Helps). One of them is the Nepos Tablet, where "every program can be used in the same, self-explanatory way."

PAGE Magazin, which dedicated a whole article to our centerpiece, the Universal Interface (UI+) at the end of June, explains exactly how this works. Together with our lead designer Giuseppe Vitucci I had the opportunity to explain how the Nepos interface works in detail and which concepts must be considered in UX/UI design for seniors in an interview with Laura Reinke.




As a Berlin Tech-Startup, naturally we were delighted with the article in the Berliner Zeitung. In the 1 June issue, Jochen Knoblauch introduced Nepos in the section "Made in Berlin." Besides describing the tablet, the article also sheds light on the important social background: "According to the current D21 Digital Index, the annual status report of the digital society, more than half of the country's over-65-year-olds have no access to the online world. Nepos aims to remove the barrier."

We were also pleased about the CEBIT recommendation "You shouldn't miss these startup highlights" from, Germany's leading medium on the topics of e-Business, future technologies, and digital working, and also about the interview in StartupValley. There, we were able to describe the process of founding Nepos and highlight the role of the target group tests during the development of the tablet. If you also want to know where we see ourselves in the next few years, simply check out the article.



The conversations with journalists are also important for us in order to understand the market even better and to further optimize communication around our product. You too can help us by asking us your questions, giving us feedback and exchanging ideas with us. So, tune in to our Live Video Chat on 5 July at 6:00 pm.


Florian and I look forward to meeting you and answering your questions.

Investments in crowdfunding projects offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, these investments are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by splitting their investment amount between crowdfunding campaigns rather than investing all of it in one crowdfunding campaign. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the Companists are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the Companists – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, crowdfunding investments are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
