1. WE ADDRESS REAL-WORLD ISSUES

We believe Technology is a problem-solver therefor we use it to solve real Insurance-related problems.

2. AGILITY FIRST

We focus on the result. That is why we are flexible, quick and react to changes.

3. IN OUR ECOSYSTEM ALL STAKEHOLDERS ARE EQUAL

We develop equal opportunity ecosystem where all stakeholders co-operate to improve one another and the Insurance community as a whole.

4. WE BELIEVE THAT THE STATE IS JUST ONE OF US

We believe that the State is important contributor in any Technological ecosystem through creation of favorable conditions, adaption of legislation to modern realities and supporting private initiatives within public-private partnerships.

5. WE DEVELOP IMPROVED CULTURE OF VENTURE FINANCING

It is necessary to create an environment where the interests of participants in risky transactions will be protected. For startups - affordable investment. For investors - the confidence that the investment will be justified.

6. WE PARTNER GLOBALLY

We aim at global Insurtech partnerships. International collaboration expands opportunities, reduces technological gaps, shares practices and knowledge and makes scaling accessible.

7. WE SHARE EXPERIENCE

We are open for entrepreneurs. Each person has specific experience and knowledge that can be useful for new entrepreneurs. Be a mentor - share your experience and teach what you can.

8. WE FACILITATE INVESTMENT IN INSURTECH PRODUCTS

Clients are the best investors of Insurtech startups. They provide a permanent source of income, practice the business model, assess market attractiveness and reduce the need for investment. We ask the government, corporations, organizations, and individuals to buy goods and services from our startups.

9. WE ARE PROUD TO BE INSURTECH ENTREPRENEURS

Entrepreneurs are a new force; standard-bearers who lead and inspire for changes and make life better. Entrepreneurs should become a role model for young talents, motivate to the development and inspire with their achievements.
