Nepos Launches Pilot Project with Geeny, Part of Telefónica NEXT


Dear Companists,

The advantages of digitalization in the health industry are evident. Many elderly people can benefit from smart digital technologies. Only if they understand how to use the devices, how to communicate with their families, caretakers, and physicians via the devices or how to use these to track their own data.

Our expertise in user guidance and our tablet caught Telefónica Next’s interest. The entrepreneurial spin-off of Telefónica Next, a leading mobile service provider in Germany, promotes innovation in the areas of big data, audience targeting and internet of things. We are pleased to start a joint pilot project with Geeny, Telefónica Next’s consumer IoT platform. Geeny’s aim is to connect products with a “mix and match” strategy to create new use cases for consumers.


Nepos - Geeny


Best practice example Cardiomo

Using Cardiomo as an example, Geeny and we want to demonstrate the advantages of digital networking for older people. Cardiomo is a device that controls human health and can detect symptoms of diseases such as stroke, heart attacks or specific heart diseases. The device is worn on the chest below the heart; it measures heart rhythm, body temperature, movement, and records electrocardiograms. The integrated motion sensor even detects falls.

The Cardiomo app reminds you to take your medication on time and offers many other supporting functions. Cardiomo evaluates all data using state-of-the-art algorithms; the processed data is uploaded to the Geeny cloud. The Nepos interface is intended to make it easier for Cardiomo users to access their data and use the device. The collaboration on this project will start in the next few days.


Berlin Valley title story

We were all excited and incredibly happy yesterday when we saw the latest edition of the Berlin Valley: Wow! The startup magazine dedicated the cover story to Nepos. If you want to read the article, you can find the free e-paper here:

The editor-in-chief of Berlin Valley, Jan Thomas, with whom I had a long and very interesting conversation and who followed our story over a longer period of time, writes in his foreword: "Occasionally, Berlin Valley presents entrepreneurs who follow their social responsibility, address socially relevant issues, and are not just out for the big exit."

You are most welcome to continue supporting us on this path.

Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. 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 investors on Companisto 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 investors (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, investments in startups and growth companies 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.
