Winter is coming…

… for the insurance industry. The next big area within finance to get disrupted, insurance is ripe for innovation and and Cuvva is starting with car insurance.

Ever thought the premium pay for your car insurance is opaque and unfair? Well, that’s because it is.

At Cuvva we have fixed this by allowing you to insure yourself on a car for as little as an hour, in a couple of taps of a screen. No more meerkat toys, no more singing tenors, we have cut out all the middlemen and built our own platform to distribute insurance on mobile.

Cuvva is a tech-driven insurance start-up changing the way people engage with their insurance company, the way they buy insurance, and the way they think about owning a car. Cuvva is well funded, has recently completed the Barclays/Techstars fintech accelerator and will be scaling the business quickly over the next 12-18 months. We’re a team of seven full and thee more part-time people, and we’re hiring!
