I am proud of the bootstrapped growth we have achieved in our two territories to date, it’s a testament to our amazing team. Our first institutional round of funding will allow us to expand further into new territories and insurance verticals within the US and EU.”

Andrew Rear, CEO of Digital Partners, said: “Inshur’s growth in less than a year shows how they are transforming the experience commercial drivers have with insurance. We are proud to have been with them since the beginning of their journey.”
