We are an engineering-led technology scale-up applying complex computer science techniques to change the way risk is determined and to drive better decision making through our SaaS platform, Renew. Renew has been carefully engineered to let users build and deploy mathematical models that can then be used to harness the power of complex data sets, while at the same time enhancing their own technical skillset.
We are currently applying this to specialty insurance pricing and Renew has already solved a great number of deeply complex problems for its users, including how to insure a Space X launch! This involved wrangling all manner of weird and wonderful, fragmented datasets to calculate the risk of any possible obstacle and outcome, right from the astronauts’ arrival at the launchpad to the rocket breaking through each layer of earth's atmosphere and then a safe return to Earth, accounting for every potential obstacle along the way - including space debris!
We are currently partnered with some of the largest and most cutting-edge names in specialty and enterprise insurance today, and our client base is growing rapidly. Over the last 2 years we have grown from a 15-person start-up in Peckham to a 100-person, post-Series A scaleup with HQ at The Ministry, Borough. We've been busily establishing our 'foundations to scale' and have now have the framework required to take us to the next level.
