“We are very excited to have Insurtech Gateway as part of our journey and benefit from the team’s vast and unique experience in insurance and in getting start-up off the ground and to taking them to scale.” 

Maria Mateo Iborra, Co-Founder and CEO, IBISA

“Historically microinsurance was not commercially viable due to many reasons such as low premiums, expensive claims handling, challenging distribution and a lack of trust. IBISA is using technology across the whole ecosystem to solve these problems and help manage risk. Enabling smallholder farmers around the world to access affordable insurance and stabilise their incomes in the face of extreme weather. We are excited to be investing in such an impactful and scalable model.”
