About this Episode

Sarah and Nigel are joined by two great guests to talk about fintechs and insurtechs teaming up! The guests joining us today are:

  • Dylan Bourguignon, CEO and founder of So-Sure
  • David Vanek, CEO and founder of Anorak

First, up the guests explain how they go about establishing partnerships with fintechs. Dylan's So-Sure was able to join Starling's marketplace after having dinner with the company's CEO, Anne Boden. David on the other hand, didn't have dinner with anyone, but by building an interesting product Anorak were able to join the Starling marketplace. Sarah makes the point that this proves that there are two ways of going about this, one of them is a more personal way of making connections, whereas the other one puts product first.

Nigel argues that the Starling marketplace idea is indeed very interesting, but it how do we take it from reactive, to proactive?

Next up, Sarah spoke to Jason Maude, CTO at Starling, as he couldn’t join us for this roundtable to get his perspective on everything we discussed.
