It’s 2021 and the insurtech scene is still booming. 2020 saw $7.2 billion (US) of investors’ cash go to insurtech start ups and scale ups around the world with huge funding rounds coming thicker and faster than ever before. Alongside these funding rounds we’re seeing the terms “IPO” and “SPAC” on our LinkedIn feeds with increasing regularity meaning it’s an exciting time for the industry.

We’re going to get the insights from the investors as we uncover where their priorities are for the rest of the year and beyond and where they consider the next disruptor to pop up.
