Funding Round-up: Are these 15 Companies Signalling Investment Recovery in 2024?
2024 has seen a raft of impressive investment rounds hitting the headlines. Are we in full-blown investment recovery? Or is this a slowdown rebound? Insurtech Insights rounds up the top funding events. 

Earlier this month, Insurtech Insights ran a Linkedin poll asking whether the current, busy funding climate, which has seen a number of impressive investment rounds take place in recent weeks, is in a state of recovery. 

The respondents showed a significant amount of optimism when asked the question: Is investment funding opening up for insurtech startups?

A positive 36% said the environment was definitely getting better, a further 38% opted to be more watchful, but agreed that ‘maybe’ the situation was improving, while only 27% said the space has not improved since the slump of 2023. 

We’ve rounded up the latest funding event success stories, detailing which companies have hit the capital jackpot, who their investors are – and how they are planning to scale their insurtechs.
