Honeycomb Other Participants: Phoenix Insurance, New Era Capital Partners, IT-Farm Corporation and NFP Ventures Adam Blumencranz, vice president, NFP Ventures: “The US multi-family property insurance is one of the most wildly inefficient insurance markets. Complex policies, too small to justify thorough manual underwriting practices, lead to broad-brush risk assessment where many insurers restrict coverage based on region or building age. Honeycomb corrects this with AI-based precision underwriting that offers the simplest way to shop for customized insurance in the market, regardless of building type. The platform’s innovative risk management offerings also allow brokers to have more frequent and meaningful engagement with customers over the lifetime of a policy.”
