The Top InsurTech Ventures by VC Capital Raised

Venture-Capitalist.jpg

InsurTech is in it’s Cambrian explosion phase with lots of funding action. So we thought it was time for a snapshot.

The amount of capital raised is only one predictor of success. The startup world is full of klunkers that raised a huge amount and bootstrappers who created $ billions in value. In this list alone, Zenefits is clearly having a lot of trouble having raised half a big one.

Nevertheless, the amount of capital raised is a reasonable proxy of value based on the wisdom of a savvy crowd (VCs).

We will keep updating this sheet, so please tell us if you see anything missing.

Thanks to all who contributed to this research, here is an updated list (in $ millions):

Zhong An Asia 900 Full Stack

Embroker America 14.4 SME
Alan europe 13 Health
Praedicat Europe 12 Catastrophe
QuanTemplate Europe 10.25 Tech

Takeways

  • America still leads by number of ventures and total $ raised.
  • Asia leads by the most raised by a single venture.
  • Health Insurance is the big driver in America
  • Berlin is emerging as an InsurTech Hub in Europe

If I have missed any that should be on that list ie have raised more than the $9.14m, please tell us in comments and we will correct.

  1. I would no longer label Lemonade as “P2P.” In their Transparency Chronicles Part 2 blog post(https://www.lemonade.com/blog/lemonades-first-quarter-market/), they say:

    “If I had to choose one thing that didn’t work as we had hoped, it’s our use of P2P to describe what Lemonade is. We looked for a term that would encapsulate our ideas around affinity groups, Giveback and the fact that we don’t treat customers’ premiums as ‘our money.’ In retrospect, it created a lot of confusion. People seem to read so many different things into this term, so we now describe ourselves using phrases like AI and Behavioral Economics. Call it what you may (and we get it, P2P wasn’t a winner) but in a nutshell, Lemonade is a tech company doing insurance, and not an old insurance company with an app.”

    So I’d label them as P&C.
