We’re Urban Jungle and we’re here to change the insurance industry for good.
We’re sure many of you reading this haven’t considered a career in insurance, but let us tell you why you should.
Urban Jungle was founded in 2016 after we experienced first-hand just how rigid and outdated the insurance industry was. We saw no embrace of technology and no empathy for real-world situations – like how people are renting for longer, and with more flatmates. We knew people shouldn’t have to settle for less.
We brought our own-label insurance products to market in 2019 and have since sold over 80,000 policies. Putting the customer at the heart of what we do and leveraging the use of technology, we’ve built insurance products that are fair, simple and created for the times we live in.
We continue to diversify our product range to meet the needs of a new generation of people. Going from strength to strength, we placed 1st in the TechRound100 2021, 12th in the Startups100 2021 and we won the “Best Employer Award” in the UK FinTech Awards 2021. We’ve raised $22M to date and have amassed over 4,000 5-star TrustPilot reviews.
And the best bit? This is just the beginning.
