Vienna, October 26, 2022

After having successfully collaborated in the development and product launch of leading mobile-key solutions in the European access-control market in the last five years, the co-founders of Tapkey, together with DOM Security, are proud to announce that this strong partnership is now also reflected on a shareholder basis. 

Gregor Zehetner, Co-CEO at Tapkey, said: “We are delighted to welcome DOM Security as a strong and strategic shareholder. This constellation grew out of a highly trustful collaboration over the past years and enables Tapkey to advance to the next level of growth.”

Founded in 2014, Vienna-based Tapkey today employs ten people and achieved a turnover of nearly 1M€ in 2021 as a provider of leading open mobile-key platform technology for the building access and mobility industries.

 

What will change

The founding team is excited about the massively growing demand for secure and reliable technology in the field of mobile credential solutions. The backing of DOM Security accelerates Tapkey’s ability to execute on the product roadmap for existing end customer solutions (e.g., the Tapkey App) as well as integration capabilities for partners (e.g., via Tapkey’s SDKs and API) in different verticals.

 

What does not change

While this deal of course positively changes Tapkey as a company in terms of capabilities and stability, it does not change the way in which we identify ourselves as an open platform for our valued customers, hardware partners and integration partners. 

Furthermore, while each deal changes the structure of the ownership, Markus Minichmayr, Gregor Zehetner and Jochen Schurich—as the founding team—are fully committed to the future of Tapkey GmbH by keeping their shares in the company. Together with the whole Tapkey team, they will continue to dedicate all energy in strengthening the position of Tapkey as the leading platform in secure mobile keys.

Markus Minichmayr, Co-CEO and CTO at Tapkey, said: “DOM Security’s and Tapkey’s joint journey has already led to many exciting, top-notch products in the past. By joining Tapkey as a shareholder, the cooperation goes to the next level, allowing not only for even more innovation but also long-term stability.”

We thank Jérôme Denis, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of DOM Security for the warm welcome to the group. Jérôme said: “Tapkey is a successful company developing innovative and secure digital-access rights via its open cloud-based platform, which are perfectly in line with the technical and environmental building-market expectations; its know-how and products will integrate closely with our access-control solutions. Welcome to the Tapkey team within DOM Security!”
