保险创企Pie Insurance获1100万美元A轮融资

本周,位于美国的工人赔偿保险创企Pie Insurance完成了由Greycroft领投的1100万美元A轮融资,Aspect Ventures、现有投资者Sirius Group、Moxley Holdings和Elefund跟投。

Pie Insurance成立于2017年5月,目标是小企业(SMB)工人补偿保险市场。该公司建立了管理总代理(MGA)运营机制,并获得了必要的监管审批。

据了解,Pie Insurance目前为美国八个州的中小企业提供在线保险服务。

新资金将用于扩大公司的运营规模并扩大地域范围,因为除德克萨斯州外,美国每个州的中小企业都需要该项服务。

该公司表示,Pie的商业模式和价值主张利用先进的分析技术,更准确地识别中小企业的风险,去除了很多采购流程步骤,为用户节省了大量成本。据其模型推算,80%的小企业保险费用都偏高,最大超标率可达30%。

Pie Insurance联合创始人兼首席执行官John Swigart表示,

“过时的商业模式给中小型企业所有者带来了不必要的负担。而我们的目标就是帮助更多的小型企业消除这些障碍。”

 

US-based workers’ compensation insurance Pie Insurance completed an $11 million Series A funding round led by Greycroft and including participation from Aspect Ventures, existing investors Sirius Group, Moxley Holdings, and Elefund.

Founded in May 2017, Pie Insurance is targeting the small business (SMB) workers’ compensation market. The company built a managing general agent (MGA) operation and secured the necessary regulatory approvals. Pie offers an online buying process for SMBs in eight US states.

The new funds will be used to scale the company's operations and to expand geographically, as workers’ compensation is a requirement for SMBs in every state except Texas.

“Pie combines two elements that really stand out - a unique set of underwriting data and an experienced founder who was instrumental in building an online insurance company that was sold for over a billion dollars,” said Ian Sigalow, partner and co-founder of Greycroft. “They have already accomplished a lot, which is particularly noteworthy because they launched the company only a little more than a year ago.”

Pie’s business model and value proposition utilizes advanced analytics to more accurately identify risk for SMBs, removing steps from the purchase process, and often generating significant savings, according to company claims. According to its predictive model, 80 percent of small businesses are overpaying for coverage, often by as much as 30 percent.

“SMB owners are unfairly burdened by an outdated business model that requires too much of their time and effort in order to meet their insurance needs,” said John Swigart, co-founder and CEO of Pie. “We can remove these hurdles for a larger number of small businesses with this investment.”
