Insurance Tech Startup

The dynamic tech startup offers an online tool to provide comparisons of insurance offers. The site connects the user with the offers of all insurers in the market in order to not only compare their products but also eventually contract their services in the same online platform. The goal is to bring transparency to the insurance market in Uruguay, helping to provide symmetry to an otherwise complex market. This startup seeks to provide Uruguayans with a way to buy insurance outside of the traditional office of a broker, where incentives are given that benefit the broker and harm the client. For this reason it works to bring all the insurance information to the end user, in a simple way to understand, so that the client can purchase insurance by making decisions adapted to his own needs and not to those of an intermediary.
