The Insurtech 50 is CB Insights' annual list of the 50 most promising private insurtech companies in the world. This year’s winners are working on cyber insurance, climate risk, distribution, and more.
CB Insights has unveiled the winners of the second annual Insurtech 50 — a list of the 50 most promising private insurtech companies across the globe.
Among this year’s winners, some are developing new AI tools and infrastructure for insurers to digitize and improve back-office efforts, while others are competing with legacy insurers by building tech-first insurance platforms. A number of winners are digitally linking various stakeholders in the insurance industry, such as by opening new distribution channels or enabling more efficient risk transfer exchanges.
The CB Insights research team picked these 50 vendors from a pool of over 2K companies, including applicants and nominees. They were chosen based on CB Insights datasets — including R&D activity, Mosaic scores, business relationships, Yardstiq transcripts, investor profiles, news sentiment analysis, competitive landscape, and team strength — and criteria such as tech novelty and market potential.
