Our story

The story of esurance began in 2013 in the “garage”, so to speak. Three heads full of ideas wanted to develop a kind of “eBanking” for insurances and sat down to code after work. This resulted in a digital insurance folder for private individuals. The approach was good, but not good enough to solve customers’ real problems.

Year after year, the business model evolved and the product matured. More and more insurance experts and IT specialists joined the team in the Zurich and Kiev offices. At the same time, our figures climbed to considerable heights. We made our way through the Swiss insurance landscape, established contacts, signed contracts and built networks.

From 2018, the focus was increasingly placed on B2B2C. In collaboration with industry associations, specific insurance offers for individual industries such as gastronomy and IT were digitized via the platform. The esurance platform is also in use as a white label solution. The offers are accessible to sales partners, brokers and SMEs.

Thus, esurance went from being an “eBroker” to a configurable distribution platform that provides access to digital entry points. Small businesses (SMEs), insurance companies, technology partners and sales organizations are connected. In this way, we enable efficient sales and consulting processes for smart insurance solutions.

Our credo: smart insurance distribution. We believe in self-determination and make insurance distribution simple, digital and personal. And we are far from finished.
