Speaking on the development, Balachander Sekhar, CEO, RenewBuy, said,
“We are happy to announce the partnership with Evolvence, which is known for its investments across global markets, and especially Middle East markets. This is a validation of the work RenewBuy has been doing in the insurance category over the years and the huge opportunity that lies ahead of us.”
With this funding, the Gurugram-based insurtech startup has closed its Series C round at $55 million.
In recent times, there has been increased traction in the insurtech space in India, and investors are investing heavily in the segment. According to a report by S&P Global, India accounted for 35% of the $3.66 billion in insurtech-focused venture capital invested in the APAC region. And, as the insurance segment in life, health, and property are underpenetrated, the Insurtech ecosystem in India is bound to accelerate in the coming years.
