After knowing how much of funding top InsurTech companies have raised, now let’s discuss an InsurTech company named Zego in the most comprehensive way.
Insight into Zego and how much it has raised?
Zego is the London-based InsurTech startup which was founded by two former directors of the Deliveroo, Britain’s largest food delivery company. While they were working for Deliveroo, they came across several problems of gig workers. One of the problems gig workers were facing that time was that they had to purchase an insurance policy to work for the Deliveroo and since there wasn’t any dedicated InsurTech company for gig workers, they had to pay a large amount to get rewarded with insurance. To eliminate this deep-rooted problem, Sten Saar and Harry Franks developed an Insurance mobile app and deployed their very inexpensive insurance service for the gig workers and even for the fleet owners.
2 years ago, in its series A of the funding round, Zego has raised £6 million from Balderton Capital and Local Globe. Recently, they have raised more $42 million in their series B of the funding round. This is one of the largest funding rounds for a Europe-based InsurTech startup. According to the CEO of the Zego, they will use this amount to expand their business processes across Europe and to hire more staff.
Which are the services Zego is providing?
Zego’s insurance services are categorized mainly in two categories. These are insurance for riders and drivers and insurance for the fleet owners.
Scooter insurance is designed for food delivery drivers and courier driver. User can select the type of insurance from the available options like fully comprehensive, third party theft, and third party fire and theft. However, Zego is providing insurance for those drivers only who are working with a few approved work providers such as Deliveroo, Just Eat, One Delivery and Uber Eats.
Van insurance is designed for van drivers. They can either chose the Pay-As-You-Go pricing model or a fix 30 days pricing model. If a user opts for Pay-As-You-Go pricing model, the minimum amount he has to pay per hour is £0.80 and if he opts for monthly pricing module, then he needs to pay somewhere around £120 to £350 based on the type of insurance.
Zego is also providing insurance for those delivery drivers who deliver the couriers and food on their bicycles. This is the Zego’s most affordable insurance. Moreover, it is flexible insurance which means users have to pay only for the hours they work.
Zego’s insurance for the fleets enables the fleet owner to cover any type of fleet under insurance. Zego approves the insurance request of the fleet owner after analyzing the usage and risk posed by each vehicle. Zego can cover the unlimited vehicle of the fleet under its insurance policy.
After reading the funding report and successful business story of the Zego, if you are thrilled to develop InsurTech app, there are a few top features you need to know before going for Insurance app development.
