Making a Marx: Lessons learnt from the rise and fall of Guevara

In this session Paul Anderson, one of the Guevara founders, will offer a personal insight into the journey the business went on; from its inception to winning the Wired Money start-up competition, its peer-to-peer roots to looking to build a full stack alternative to conventional motor insurance companies.

Paul will offer observations on the present InsurTech scene; lessons the Guevara team learnt trying to disrupt a traditional and entrenched market like motor; and how he sees the future potentially panning out in terms of the broader adoption of new and potentially disruptive technologies within insurance.
