Lemonade at the Close of 2018
James Wencil May 09, 2019 Posted in: Blog Posts, Homeowners, Insurance / Insurers
Lemonade Insurance Company is making noise in the homeowners and renters insurance markets as a pioneer in the Insurtech space. Lemonade opened its doors in 2016, supercharged with venture capital horsepower, strategic partnerships with global reinsurance giants, and an idea. Management aimed to take a fresh perspective on homeowners insurance by leveraging high-tech and behavioral economics. Not only is the front end of the insurance process automated, but so is the claims handling process. Utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain-backed anti-fraud algorithms, Lemonade is able to pay out 25% of claims in three seconds of receiving first notice of claim. The remaining claims are handled by Lemonade’s claim department staffed by human beings.

When we remember 2018, its events and circumstances have been more varied and challenging than one might imagine. Hacks, ransomware and data intrusions were announced weekly. Volcanic eruptions, wildfires and mudslides decimated a record number of homes and forest acreage. The entire island of Puerto Rico continues to suffer Hurricane Maria’s devastating effects. We have also become numb to the numerous senseless shootings in places where we used to feel safe.
