Lately we have been enjoying a steady drumbeat of increasing buzz and recognition as word gets out about what we're doing.
First, Daily Finance named us one of the top InsurTech companies in San Francisco. Then we were on the InsTech London "Watch List" for Location Intelligence. Before we knew it, our co-founder Shanna was featured by Avanta Ventures on International Women's Day. But now we have a new reason to celebrate, and this one feels even more fulfilling because we intentionally set out to give it our best shot and go head-to-head with many other great startups in the industry:
Over 120 eligible startups applied, a smaller subset pitched at the event, and judges selected winners who showed the most commercial potential.
You can read more about the competition from InsurTech NY, including these words from our CEO Kevin Stein: “We are excited and honored to be selected as the angel investor prize winner. New MGAs in markets like ours benefit from broad exposure because we can help provide new products for reinsurers, insurers, and brokers, and change the lives of policyholders that were non-renewed because of misclassification in wildfire zones.”
Congrats to the other winners, Tide Foundation, Loadsure and RemitRix!
