The Insurtech 50 is CB Insights’ annual list of the 50 most promising private insurtech companies in the world. This year’s inaugural winners are using technology to improve all aspects of the insurance value chain – from customer acquisition to underwriting and claims – for a variety of different insurance products.

CB Insights has unveiled the winners of the first annual Insurtech 50 — a list of the 50 most promising private insurtech companies across the globe.

Some of this year’s winners are aiming to provide a better digital insurance experience for customers looking to buy life, health, and P&C insurance products. Others are developing technology to help insurers improve their underwriting, claims, distribution, and other internal operations — empowering them to provide a better insurance experience.

Using the CB Insights platform, our research team picked these 50 private market vendors from a pool of over 2K companies, including applicants and nominees. They were chosen based on factors including R&D activity, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, business relationships, investor profile, news sentiment analysis, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The research team also reviewed hundreds of Analyst Briefings submitted by applicants.
