Our company was built on the recognition that too many businesses born into the digital world were being ineffectively served by a broken insurance industry that remained confusing, cumbersome in process, and consistently provided poor customer service.
We set out to change that by harnessing rich data to deliver a simple, fast and seamless experience to obtain commercial auto insurance, initially for New York’s Uber drivers, but quickly expanded our presence and products throughout the UK and Netherlands.
Our next-generation, data-led technology enables drivers to obtain quotes and receive coverage in mere minutes. We pride ourselves on being digital-first, but when our customers need – or simply prefer – a person to speak with, our top-rated customer service teams are standing by to help.
Fast forward to 2021 and we have recently completed our Series B funding, taking the total raised for our business to $35 million (£25 m). The new funding is fueling our ambitious global growth plans, enabling us to invest in technology, recruit the best people, and bring new product lines to an expanded market.
We have a talented team of over 150 people spanning across the US, UK and Netherlands and were recently recognized at the prestigious British Insurance Awards for our commitment to diversity and inclusion.
