Silicon Valley Insurance Technology Company Opens Hartford Office

Silicon Valley Insurance Technology Company Opens Hartford Office
Local Insurtech Boom Shows No Signs of Slowing Down

The growing insurtech industry in Hartford continues its success with the latest addition of Sureify, the leading digital platform for life and annuity insurance companies. Headquartered in Silicon Valley and widely recognized for reimagining digital sales, servicing, and customer engagement, Sureify is expanding with a new office at the Nassau Re/Imagine insurtech incubator at Nassau Re’s downtown Hartford headquarters.

“Hartford is the historic center of the insurance industry, and you have a lot of people wanting to live up to that history by bringing in the insurtechs—we like that,” Sureify Senior Vice President Bryan Padgette said. “Having an outpost in Hartford just makes sense for us, given the insurance companies here—including some that are our clients.”

As Hartford continues to attract innovative technology companies, the Insurance Capital of the U.S. is paying close attention to the changing insurance ecosystem. Companies from all over the world vie for a spot in the Hartford Insurtech Hub’s accelerator cohort each year and the momentum continues growing.

“Hartford is a turnkey location for insurtech,” said Susan Winkler, Executive Director of Connecticut Insurance and Financial Services, an initiative of the MetroHartford Alliance.  “Adding a leading-edge company like Sureify to the Capital City is a coup for all of us.”

City officials have given Sureify a warm welcome.

“We’re thrilled that Sureify chose Hartford to grow their business, and that they’re partnering with one of our leading companies in Nassau Re,” said Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin.  “We’ve made a deliberate effort to build Hartford into an insurtech hub, and this is another sign we’re on our way to doing just that.”

Sureify, a California-based technology company, provides a digital sales, servicing, and engagement platform to life insurance companies. Sureify’s new office will be located in Nassau Re’s Hartford incubator, Nassau Re/Imagine.

In addition to its core offering, Sureify’s platform integrates with a growing number of partner technologies that the insurance industry has been trying to leverage, including predictive analytics software, medical records data sharing, and more. Sureify sees Hartford as a key geography for expanding these types of collaborations.

Established in February 2019, it supports selected companies focused in the life insurance, annuity and reinsurance industries with complimentary office space and business development services. Sureify is the second company to join, following Luminant Analytics, a B2B company from Switzerland that provides analytical insights and predictive models for insurance companies.
