Hippo Insurance | Proptech Talk Thursday #3
Welcome to my new PropTech Talk Thursday series to take a look and provide my candid thoughts on new Proptech businesses. These could range from products to companies leveraging technology to improve all facets of real estate. The Real Estate industry is one of the slowest to adopt technology but there are many opportunities along with money chasing these opportunities. This week, let’s take a look at Hippo Insurance.
Hippo Insurance, based in Palo Alto, CA, recently raised $150 million in a new round of funding in July, bringing its total funding to $359M, and a valuation of $1.5 billion. They started their business in 2015 and have grew to $270MM in premiums written. How does this compare to the industry? Take a look here at the top 10 insurance providers. They are currently at 0.27% of the US market so on one end, there is a lot of room to grow, but at the same time, it’s a tiny fraction of these well known providers.
