Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Disruption of the insurance sector is well underway and holds a lot of growth opportunities. Leading this growth is Getsafe, a unique mobile-first platform that makes insurance simple, fair, and accessible, bridging the gap between traditional insurance distribution and the needs of a new generation of customers.

Unlike established insurance corporations, Getsafe’s innovative infrastructure is able to expand to new product lines and markets within a matter of a few months. By replacing complex manual paperwork with smart bots and automation, customers can instantly change their coverage, file, and check the status of their claims all from their smartphones.

Getsafe is the best-rated insurance app in Germany and after using its Series B capital to fund its own insurance license, it has expanded its reach across various European countries. The company’s accelerated growth and successful expansions thus far have it well-placed to become one of Europe’s leading digital insurers.
