Ep 27 – Jay Weintraub & Caribou Honig, Co-Founders, InsureTech Connect

“Lyft is essentially an insurance company, that just happens to do rideshares.” – Caribou Honig

Ideas spread through a community.

And for many of us siloed in our desk jobs, this phenomenon may be absent in our lives. That’s where the role of conferences come into play.

By gathering groups of people within any given industry—ideas are able to bounce between minds, and creativity is sparked.

However, this isn’t the case for every conference. Many are filled with long lectures, boring keynote speakers, and stale meet & greets.

Not InsureTech Connect.

On today’s episode of FNO: InsureTech—we are joined by Jay Weintraub & Caribou Honig—co-founders of InsureTech Connect—the world’s largest insurtech event — offering unparalleled access to the largest and most comprehensive gathering of tech entrepreneurs, investors and insurance industry incumbents from across the globe.

Ep 26 – Bryan Falchuk, Head of Customer, Hi Marley  

“It’s not a texting tool. It’s not a chatbot. It’s much bigger than that. It’s a hub.” – Bryan Falchuk

It boils down to customer satisfaction.

At the end of the day, if your policyholders aren’t happy—they will just seek out other carriers for coverage. We see this happen in the companies that get lost in the other metrics: annual revenue, marketing budgets, R&D.

The bottom is that in 2019, there is too much competition, and customers are too smart to be given average service. Companies have to constantly meet and surpass customer expectations.

On today’s episode of FNO: InsureTech, we are sitting down with Head of Customer at Hi Marley—Bryan Falchuk. Hi Marley is a conversation platform that simply and easily connects people with their insurance companies by combining intelligent messaging and human touch to make the experience as easy and efficient as possible.

“Know what problem you’re trying to solve. And who you’re trying to solve it for.” – Ted Stuckey

(click to tweet)

Innovation comes from the startup.

But a startup has only so much power to bring those new ideas to life. When first starting out, the labor required to lift the operation above sea level is so immense that innovation gets lost in the noise of to-do’s.

This is when it may be time to partner with a corporation.

On today’s episode of FNO: InsureTech, we are joined by Ted Stuckey, the Managing Director at QBE Ventures. In this role, Ted looks to invest in technology solutions that have the potential to transform QBE and the international markets in which they operate.
