InsTech London - insurance & innovation

Florian Graillot, C-founder, astorya.vc; What insurers want - an investor’s view (87)

June 14, 2020

One of the fastest ways to find out what's making an impact right now when it comes to innovation in insurance is to talk to the people investing in, and advising to, the companies building new tools and technology. Florian Graillot has over 10 years of experience in investing and chose insurance as the market in which to launch his fund astorya.vc. Today the fund is investing in Aazzur, Wetterheld, Zelros and, in the few days since we recorded this interview, has announced its investment in Sesame it.  Florian is also well known as a daily commentator and publisher of fresh insights and breaking news in Europe's insurance and technology space. 

Matthew Grant covers a wider range series of topics when he talks to Florian including:

- the key themes that insurers care about 

- which company's astorya has invested in and why. And what's next

- how the insurance landscape has changed in the last year and what to expect next

- how to efficiently source new investment opportunities

- why Florian is committed to publishing content as well as managing his investment portfolio

And much more
