Sentro has won the Insurtech People's Choice award at the prestigious Plug and Play Winter Summit in Silicon Valley.
We pitched our vision for a better group insurance and benefits experience to an audience of 500 investors and large corporates. From a field of 30 amazing Plug and Play insurtech startup companies who presented at the Winter Summit, Sentro was voted the overall winner.
The voters included some of the biggest names in insurance and benefits - companies like The Hartford, Aflac, Unum, Irish Life, Assurity Life, Aon, CNO FInancial, Munich Re, Swiss Re, The Standard, USAA, EMC Insurance, SSQ Insurance, and many others.
"We were delighted to win the People's Choice award" said Rob Ellis of Sentro. "There are so many other great startups here, so be chosen the best overall insurtech by our prospective North American customers is pretty humbling and amazing".
"Being part of Plug and Play has been a game-changer for us" said Hans Frauenlob of Sentro. "It has given us enormous confidence that our platform solves some major problems for North American group insurers. We are so excited and energized about our future in this market - it feels like we have arrived at exactly the right time. Insurers that we have met realize that they need to upgrade their group insurance capabilities to meet the demands of their customers and service partners."
We entered the Plug and Play Insurtech Batch 7 program in September 2019. Since then, our sales pipeline has tripled, the associated value of that pipeline has increased tenfold, and we are in active discussions with multiple companies about projects.
"Getting this recognition is a perfect cap to a fantastic experience at Plug and Play" said Rob. "So many good things have happened as a result of our involvement here, and we know that our involvement with the Plug and Play ecosystem will continue for years to come. We can't wait to see what happens next!".
