When and why did you found your startup?

Existing medical underwriting approaches are tedious for the customer and ask for a lot of personal information. They depend on disclosure and are prone to misrepresentation and subjectivity leading to poor accuracy. This leads to a lot of application abandonment and poor pricing resulting in a huge protection gap. At the same time all of us generate and carry digital health data in smartphones and wearables. We leverage this data to assess health risks instantly and a lot more accurately so a lot more people can avail insurance protection.

What are your key and unique features?

We provide instant and accurate health assessment for underwriting life and health insurance products. Other approaches to easy and quick underwriting exclude a lot of people and are more expensive for the customers.

What is your growth like?

Growth is exponential from tens of thousands of policies last year to hundreds of thousands this year

Tell us about the numbers that matter to you.

Our underwriting approach takes 3 minutes, it is 10 to 20% more accurate and a fraction of the cost

What are your plans for next year and next 5 years?

We have lived with clients in the US, Europe, and the Asia Pacific and the product is available globally. Our plan is to continue to partner with major life and health insurers to improve and innovate medical underwriting.
