Unlike traditional insurance providers, Celo is an app-based insurance provider designed to provide cheaper quotes, faster claims, instant cover, and a pleasant user experience. We plan to offer insurance cover for motor vehicles, travel, health, and gadgets.
Like Monzo and Starling Bank who are disrupting banking, we're planning to disrupt the insurance industry.
The UK has the largest insurance industry in Europe, generating $320 billion (£250 billion) in revenue each year. In addition to this, a survey (Insurance Disrupted, Deloitte UK) found that over 77% of customers aged 25-34 would like to use their mobile phones to purchase and manage general insurance policies, something which is not focused on by current insurance providers. Celo will be built with a focus on capturing this market.
Celo plans to integrate with third-party services like Monzo Bank, Starling Bank etc. and offer their customers insurance without the need for further identification checks or sign up processes. We've already started building our backend software architecture and plan to expand our technical and marketing team to take us to beta and subsequently to full launch. We already have over 2000 users on our waiting list gained from a limited advertising campaign run on social media platforms.
We're planning to launch our beta by early 2018, and plan to launch our full-service offering by early 2019.
