Blog: Seven Indian insurtech start-ups to watch in 2017 and beyond

Incisive Insight Insurance Division content director and chair of the Post Digital Insurance Collective Jonathan Swift looks at the burgeoning insurtech scene in India and highlights a few start-ups to keep an eye on. Earlier this year I wrote a blog spotlighting seven Asian insurtech start-ups worth keeping tabs on based in Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand. There are already some notable insurtech successes such as Mumbai-based Coverfox, which has secured over $14m (£10.8m) from investors including Accel Partners, SAIF Partners and Catamaran Ventures, the private investment arm of Infosys’ co-founder NR Narayana Murthy; and PolicyBazaar, which is planning a $100m Nasdaq IPO and last year raised around $40m in its Series D round of funding from PremjiInvest, the personal investment vehicle of Wipro chairman Azim Premji, and other investors including Tiger Global.
