Introducing Design Capital


June 11, 2024


Today, Zypsy is thrilled to unveil Design Capital:

A new partnership program offering brand & product design collaboration as a strategic investment for startups.

Building a product is easy. But breaking out is harder than ever.  

90% of early-stage startups fail.

Many teams represent great potential yet, the majority fail due to the lack of brand, product, and scale in the early days when it's the most critical.

Fundamentally, all startups are evaluated on 4 things:

  • Market
  • Team
  • Product
  • Traction

Founders are stretched thin, wearing many hats, and seeking capital to drive those 4 elements.

We started Design Capital with the belief that by combining brand-building expertise with venture investment principles, we can help startups elevate from obscurity to scale.

Over the past 3 years, Zypsy has collaborated with 30+ founders.

Many succeeded, some didn’t.

But the metric we hold ourselves accountable for—our clients’ valuation growth—has grown by over $1.2 billion.

Our mission is to partner with exceptional founders and collaborate towards the next $1 billion in delta value through creative excellence.

Today, we are excited to announce our first season of Design Capital companies.
