There are many factors that make a human life special, but few are as prominent as the concept of potential. You see, even though it might not be apparent all the time, the potential of a human life remains limitless in every imaginable situation. This realization has encouraged us to make some bold bids for growth over the years. However, if we are being honest, it won’t get its biggest result until we discover a particular tool called technology. Technology gets to sit on top here for reasons that are purely meritorious. Since arriving on the scene, the creation has managed to raise the entire spectrum up a notch. Such a dynamic, as you can guess, would eventually segway into a reality where we’ll see the world moving with a different image altogether. In hindsight, we can say this new image has helped us expand beyond all known parameters, except it is still pretty far from pulling the brakes. The same is backed up well by our recent moves, and Cowbell Cyber’s latest funding should only solidify the fact even more.
Cowbell Cyber, full-stack insurance company that provides cyber insurance to SMEs, has officially secured over $100 million in Series B financing. According to certain reports, the company plans to dedicate the new cash injection towards the improvement of its in-house data science and risk engineering setup, claims management capabilities, and underwriting technology. Apart from that, Cowbell Cyber is expected to significantly upgrade its reinsurance business, Cowbell Re, while also making a run to expand the company’s go-to-market channels. Founded in 2019, Cowbell has quickly taken over the burgeoning Insurtech landscape. At present, the company monitors over 71% companies in the US market, which loosely translates to 23 million businesses, for the purpose of studying integral trends and SMB behavior. Beyond that, Cowbell also performs monitoring analysis for individual customers so to crunch out a better view of their individual risk profiles. Talk about other details related to the funding round, it was led exclusively by Anthemis Group.
“With its unique approach to cyber risk underwriting and continued collaboration with cybersecurity suppliers, Cowbell Cyber has positioned itself as the leader in the cyber insurance space for SMEs,” said managing director at Anthemis Group, Matthew Jones, who is set to join Cowbell’s board as a part of the agreement. “The company has accomplished stellar results to date and we are thrilled to be a part of their next chapter.”
As far as future plans are concerned, Cowbell is projecting a threefold increase in its policy-holder base over the next 12 months. The goal is surely ambitious, but with the current cyber insurance market only having 10% of small businesses, it has a real shot at coming to fruition.
