But there are signs of improvement for female-led startups

The number of female founders at fintechs globally remains low at 7% while the amount of funding has risen slightly from venture capital firms and support from incubators.

Nassau Re/Imagine, an incubator, is funded by the Nassau Financial Group to help female fintech founders by making introductions to investors, providing free office space, helping with marketing and event support and hosting podcasts with female founders. It has worked with ClaimSpace, an Australian claims filing startup that received a $1 million seed investment for its U.S. operations and Udotest, which was founded by CEO Allison Martin, and provides numerous in-home diagnostic tests to avoid visiting the doctor.

“We curate opportunities that bring together investors with insurtechs,” said Laura Dinan Haber, innovation program manager at Nassau Financial Group in Hartford, Conn. “When a trusted source makes an introduction, we find that meetings are taken and progress is made. Raising capital is difficult, being female should not make it harder.”

BELLEVUE, Wash. & HARTFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Symetra Life Insurance Company today announced a partnership with the Nassau Re/Imagine insurtech incubator based in Hartford, Connecticut, that will tap the creative and developmental opportunities in the region’s deep insurance industry talent pipeline. The program currently supports 19 startups focused on solving critical problems for the life, annuity, reinsurance, and property & casualty sectors.

“At Symetra, part of our strategic focus is seeking out opportunities that empower the future as we transform our business to better meet evolving customer needs across all of our business lines,” said Harry Monti, executive vice president, Benefits Division, who will join the Nassau Re/Imagine advisory board. “We like the inclusive, community-focused approach the Nassau Re/Imagine team has embraced to build their program. Our partnership gives our Enfield, Connecticut-based employees greater access to Hartford’s vibrant innovation network, multiple brainstorming events and the kind of collaborative environment that can fuel viable business ideas.”

The Nassau Re/Imagine partnership expands Symetra’s footprint in the insurtech accelerator/incubator space. Through parent company Sumitomo Life, it is a participant in the Plug and Play Tech Center in Sunnyvale, California.

Nassau Re/Imagine formally launched its program in early 2019. It actively supports individuals and teams committed to building a vibrant insurtech ecosystem within the Greater Hartford community. In return, the program provides business resources, access to potential clients, support for product commercialization, and introductions to investors. The support network includes insurance carriers, technology companies, academic institutions and professional service firms with a strong presence in the community.
