The incidental channel opportunity. Insurance 2.0 Hi there, If the current pace holds, early-stage insurance tech deals (seed/Series A) will hit a new quarterly record in Q1’16. Of note, the data highlights early-stage dealflow moving away from the healthcare space – borne out in this past week’s announced deals to pet insurance (Figo) and business insurance management (CoverWallet). Today’s newsletter features a great guest post from Kyle Nakatsuji (@kylenakatsuji) at American Family Ventures on what he calls “Insurance 2.0”. Kyle dives into the evolution of insurance distribution and touches on the power of mobile-first approaches to agency and why incidental sales channels will help shape the future of insurance. Be sure to check it out. Hope you have a great rest of the week. Matt@mlcwong If you aren’t already a client, sign up for a free trial to learn more about our platform.
