The insurance industry is different compared to other industries - investors and start-up founders learned the hard way that more "classical" approaches don't have the desired effect... In that case - what kind of investor is really beneficial for insurtechs? Is a VC with its experience and expectations from classical industries helping in building a successful insurtech? Is insurer capital with its experience in the "old world" any better? Are German/ European investors with their risk appetite actually a good fit for the insurtech space? Recent developments suggest rather not... Lets discuss!
