Thank you Michael and Allan over at AskKodiak for organizing InsureTech Boston! The room was packed–standing room only–with probably 200+ in attendance. This gathering stands in contrast to other insurance events I’ve been to–it is full of a younger crowd that is excited about leveraging their talents to think differently to solve problems–often their own pain-points. Among the many I talked with, I specifically enjoyed meeting (from my background as an agent) Matt and Ty from Openly Insured, who are looking to create a new type of insurer to solve their own pain point of wanting a clear and transparent insurance company, Casey from Apliant who brings an fresh perspective and enthusiasm to helping solve insurance agent needs, and Jonathan from Veruna, an insurance CRM based on Salesforce that I’ve been following since Jonathan and I met at the Acord Insurance Innovation Challenge 2016 (Jonathan and his team won!). Looking forward to the next event.
