Wealthtech Kaspar& Advances to Stage Two of Venture Kick’s Accelerator Programmeby Fintechnews Switzerland June 30, 2021
The St.Gallen based wealthtech startup Kaspar& announced that it has secured a seat in the second stage of Switzerland startup accelerator programme Venture Kick.
Launched in 2017, Venture Kick offers a three stage funding model initiated to support Swiss startups with enough funding to kick-start their entrepreneurial success.
In contrast to existing neo banks or robo-advisors, Kaspar& does not solely focus on one offering or single service.
Instead, its approach is to guide the customer through an entire wealth building process that is enriched with specific banking and investment services to realise proposed actions.
Previously, Kaspar& has started its first live operations and is about to launch the Alpha phase including a fully digital onboarding, an automatised top-up mechanism that allows micro-investments with every card payment transaction.
It also offers the possibility to create as many individualised investment goals with personalised underlying strategies.
“These achievements show the broad and general interest in our vertical development approach.
By setting customer needs at first place and then adding classical banking commodities, such as payments, together with wealth management services we can create an entirely new generation of B2C offering.”
says Jan-Philip Schade, co-founder of Kaspar&.
