Note from Insure.VC @ Flight.vc

The US insurance industry is approaching $2 trillion in revenue - yet it lags many industries in customer experience and innovation. We believe there is enormous opportunity to be on the leading edge of this change. The industry has started to see success from the likes of Zenefits, Oscar, CoverHound, and others - but it's still in the early innings.

We're looking for smart entrepreneurs and ambitious teams who love to drive change and solve complex problems. IoT, sensors, wearables, big data, drones, and telematics are just a few of the areas that we expect to drive significant change in the industry.

**Feel free to opt out of any deal(s) without penalty, there is no obligation - just back us to see our deal flow and choose which deals you're interested investing in.

ABOUT US: We’re a small group of operator angels with deep domain expertise in the insurance industry. We enjoy rolling up our sleeves and helping entrepreneurs drive innovation in the industry, building scalable insurance solutions across all segments - Property/Casualty, Life/Health, and Employee Benefits. The mission of Insure.VC is to help startups create a smarter, friendlier, and customer-focused insurance industry.

When the chips were down I only thought I had two options, close the company or sell it. Gil encouraged me to choose a third option "aim for the moon". We did and the result is a profitable growing company on the way to success
