Capsule.fm plays your favorite online content as a live, interactive and personalized audio experience. We take the best bits of the news, your social media, email, stock and location information and create your very own online listening experience. It's just like hearing your own web. Using advanced text-to-speech technology combined with our unique editorial engine, you can stay connected to your online content when you can't use your eyes or hands. So drive to work without missing a thing, or stay fit and informed, or even use it as a way to catch up on what you missed out on when sleeping. We will begin with by app, but our ambitions are to create the very first audio web.

We used to work at betahaus in the past and when we heard that the hub:raum accelerator program would have taken place here we were very happy. We enjoy working in a coworking space and in a great and friendly environment as betahaus. Other reasons why we applied to the program are mentors that are offered at hub:raum, as well as the workshops from General Assembly, which I believe are helping us a lot. In addition, we wanted to be close to a big and well known company as Deutsche Telekom.
We (Espen and Danielle, the two co-founders) actually met in a coworking space in Berlin.We enjoy the idea of a open dialog that usually are created in these spaces, and you can decide to be part of. These discussions are very helpful and motivating. Coworking spaces are great places where you can meet people with similar ideas and work attitude, whom you can eventually team up with. In addition, meeting people that work in different areas makes the coworking space motivating and innovating. Lastly, Espen, the CEO of Capsule.fm, believes that coworking is how we will work in the future and where you can be the most productive.
Honestly, we did not face any difficulties so far. Since the creation of the company the process has been very smooth. The idea behind capsule.fm is very innovative and original; therefore, many people want to work with us and help us growing. Also, the programming language that we use is very popular at this moment.
Our main goals are raising money and launch the product next year. In addition, the idea is compatible to any kind of device, from smartphones to computer, from car to radio. Therefore, we would like to provide our product to all of them. Lastly, we want to add more languages in order to increase the market potential.
