At Kapture, we believe that listening is a powerful way to preserve moments and relationships that matter.
Born and raised in Cincinnati OH, the company was launched by two guys – Mike and Matthew – who stumbled upon an idea that is now coming to market based on an even stronger motivation: that paying attention can completely change how we experience the world around us.
We hear amazing stuff everyday, but what do we do with what we hear? When you see something, you take out your camera and snap a photo to savor the moment. But when you hear something, you often don’t get the chance to go back and get it, to relive it or to share it with anyone. Kapture gives you that opportunity.
We’ve built a wearable device that you tap as soon as you recognize something worth saving. That simple tap sends the previous minute of audio to your smartphone, where you use our app to edit the ‘klip’ and either keep it for yourself or share it with the world. You don’t have to know or anticipate when something awesome will happen. Just tap after-the-fact to save these unexpected moments, whether you’re by yourself, with your family, or out with friends.
Make your moments heard.
Mike is a Kansas City native who’s made his home in downtown Cincinnati for almost 8 years. He’s the visionary behind the initial concept, and most of his time is spent on product development and supply chain logistics. Outside of work, Mike loves to participate in anything artistic, such as fine arts and music.
Matthew is a Cincinnati native whose life is all about innovating, connecting and giving back. He leads all customer-facing initiatives at Kapture. He spends his spare time hanging out with his family, dog Norman and wife Ashley, who’s currently pregnant with their first child.
Keith is a Detroit native fresh on his feet in Cincinnati with a background in startups, engineering, and audio (in that order). At Kapture, he manages everything from fulfillment to support to firmware and more. Outside of work, he relaxes by brewing hard cider, rebuilding abandoned items as furniture, and finding new ways to explore and get lost around the world.
Mike is the managing director at Cincytech for digital, software, and health tech, building on his 20+ years in the software industry. He was the co-founder/CEO of Talus (acquired by Sagent) and led the IPO in 1999. Mike was also the managing director at Scius Captial (NYC) before joining the CT team and investing in Kapture.
