Top 25 InsurTech Startups Insurance industry disruptors that are beating the odds

Scroll

Insurance has come a long way since its inception. The first recorded life insurance was made in the Royal Exchange in London, in 1583, when William Gybbons was insured. Since then, insurance companies have developed, over time, to become the huge, complex industry that we know today.

The latest developments in the industry have seen the rise of InsurTech Startups – energetic companies that are leveraging the latest tech to disrupt the so-called ‘traditional’ insurance markets.
