From weather analytics to coverage for pets and bicycles, these Europe-based startups are shaping the future of the global insurance industry.
Startups in the region are emerging to deliver significant tech-driven changes across the insurance industry, and they are catching the eyes of investors. As of Q2’22, Europe-based insurtechs had collectively raised $7.1B since 2018 — more than any other major region outside of the United States.
The solutions that these insurtechs provide are heavily data-driven. For instance, London-based FloodFlash uses data from connected sensors to issue parametric flood insurance policies. Meanwhile, Austria-based Blackshark.ai uses artificial intelligence (AI) and satellite imagery to offer insurance companies a 3D digital twin of the Earth for risk analysis and modeling.
Others focus on connecting more of their individual and business customers to the insurance products they need. Brussels-based Qover enables merchants to add insurance products to their online marketplaces, while Paris-based +Simple offers coverage to small businesses and self-employed workers.
