Trying to find your way around InsurTech companies and startups? We did the digging for you and categorized them in small groups, based on what they do and how they do it.
InsurTech is the combination of the words insurance and technology. That means it involves all the technology stacks involved in insurance apps, solutions, services, and other offerings.
Insurance could possibly mean a lot of things, but today we focus on four segments of InsurTech, which are usage-driven insurance, digital insurance portals, cyber insurance, and peer-to-peer insurance (P2P).
Usage driven insurance

CoverHound – Comparing insurance rates
Oscar – Health insurance with simple explanations
