Qaptis closes its pre-seed funding round!

Written on March 1, 2023

Exciting news! We are thrilled to announce that Qaptis has successfully raised CHF 1.3 million pre-seed funding.

We are grateful for the support of best-in-class investors including BlackWood, Cargill, YB Startup and Plug and Play Tech Center and excited to use this funding to validate our technology and expand the team!

At Qaptis, we are focused on building a unprecedented device that fits into existing heavy-vehicules’ engines and capture the CO2 using the waste heat available at the exhaust. Then, CO2 is valorized via our network of partners.

This success would not have been possible without the contribution of our incredible network of partners, mentors, accelerator programs, our committed team and existing investors who support us along our journey in the fight against climate change.

We look forward to sharing more updates as we continue to grow!
