近日，总部位于加利福尼亚的保险科技创企Ladder宣布获得安联人寿风投公司、Northwestern Mutual Future Ventures等公司的1000万美元战略投资。
Ladder成立于2015年，目前已经推出了一款数字化人寿保险产品，平台累计融资额已经达到5400万美元，投资机构包括RRE Ventures、Canaan Partners和Lightspeed Venture Partners。
California-based insurtech startup Ladder as secured $10 million strategic investment from Allianz Life Ventures and Northwestern Mutual Future Ventures.
The investment extends Ladder's Series B funding to a total of $40 million and will be used to continue to fund growth, specifically hiring of engineers, marketers, and product-focused teams.
Founded in 2015, Ladder has designed a digital-first life insurance product and has raised a total of $54 million in funding from investors, including RRE Ventures, Canaan Partners, and Lightspeed Venture Partners.
Ladder has expanded to 49 states and DC and is in the process of filing in the state of New York. To-date, the company has placed over $1 billion of coverage.
Many customers want to buy life insurance online, but won't wait (an average of) 8 weeks to get a decision and won't accept that they can't easily change their coverage whenever they need to, according to Ladder. The firm is using technology, design thinking, behavioural economics, and machine learning to make the process as seamless as possible for consumers.
