About the Startup

Kapsule enables large pharmaceutical companies and NGOs to safely sell and distribute medicines across the world irrespective of the destination.

What makes us unique?

For pharmaceutical companies: we enable them to track, monitor and update their product information by in real time using live environmental data. In addition we build a full map of the supply chain in emerging markets to provide accurate demand forecasting and market data (for which there is currently no reliable data source).

For NGOs we ensure that the medicines that their donors pay for are getting to the right people in a timely manner and the medicines are arriving at the right level of quality.

Go-to-market plan:

We have a land and expand strategy where we sell a single ‘module’ to a pharmaceutical company or NGO. We then deliver ROI from that module in parallel we upsell adjacent services.

Example: We sell a tracking service to a NGO to track their donated medicines to remote locations in Africa. This gives them assurance that the money spent by their donors is being appropriately used. We then upsell by providing environmental monitoring to ensure that the medicines don’t lose quality during transit by not being kept in the right conditions.


We have received a Letter of Intent from MSD.
Finalists in a bid to GSK Vaccines for a real-world bid where we outcompeted 28 other firms, including public companies.
We are in sales discussions with GSK Pharmaceuticals and Pfizer as well as a leading NGOs i+Solutions and the Clinton Foundation.
