“This round is coming just as we’re hitting our stride,” noted Asaf Lifshitz, CEO of Sayata. “The market has responded incredibly well to our offering since launch with both our broker and carrier partners asking to see more business insurance lines represented on the platform. As the broker and insurer communities increasingly rely on us, we’re excited to help them win more business. With the backing of Team8, Vertex, and our existing investors, we’re going to deliver just that.”
Sarit Firon, Managing Partner at Team8 Capital commented “We were immediately taken with Sayata. We’ve seen our share of startups, specifically InsurTechs, and Sayata’s growth is exceptional because they’ve clearly identified a market need – the ability to automate the business insurance sales cycle in a way that removes friction and ambiguity. This allows the broker, insurer, and client to get what they need with less work and in less time. Sayata’s ongoing expansion into new lines of coverage will provide even more value to those that offer or need business insurance within the $100 bn SMB insurance market.”
