Women-led InsurTechs emerge with fresh ideas for industry
The insurance industry, known more for its risk-averse profile than its appetite for disruption, has begun to fundamentally shape-shift over the past decade. A great deal of that change has come thanks to InsurTechs startups that are changing the game by bringing new technologies to the industry.
However, as in other technology sectors, as well as the insurance industry itself, the statistics around women leaders in the InsurTechs space are underwhelming. A recent study of 535 InsurTechs companies worldwide by Eva Genzmer of the German InsurTechs Friendsurance found that just 4% — 20 in total — were founded by women.
