The IPO of Lemonade (LMND) has created a fury of teenage Robinhood traders snapping up the stock. It is thought-provoking how a simple ticker symbol has the power to make InsurTech a household term.
Looking back to when it all began in 2015, the story of how to develop and raise an InsurTech unicorn has the power to move the industry forward.
Did you know that:
~ On average, it has taken (5) funding rounds to become a unicorn.
~ The oldest InsurTech unicorn is Policy Bazaar, founded in 2008
~ 2015 was the year of the most unicorns founded (4): Hippo, Lemonade, Next, and Root
~ InsurTech unicorns have raised nearly $1B of equity since the onset of the pandemic.
