Gabi, a San Francisco based insurance startup, has raised $2.6M in seed funding from A Capital, SV Angel, Project A and a group of angels. Gabi is a personal insurance platform that ensures customers always have the right coverage at the best price.
Gabi provides insurance shoppers with unprecedented visibility into rates, in a single place where they can compare all the major insurance companies’ rates and instantly get a quote without having to go to multiple sites and fill out forms. Moreover, Gabi’s quotes are completely unbiased, as they’re driven by technology rather than insurance agents focused on commissions.
Gabi's powerful technology reviews and compares people’s current insurance rates to major insurer’s rates, then finds the right coverage at the best rate possible. At signup, customers link their car and home insurance accounts or send their policies to Gabi. Gabi then analyzes their current coverage and compares the rate with those of major insurance companies to find a better price for the same coverage.
“Our technology allows us to put the customer first again, simplify the process and save consumers a lot of money every year,” said Gabi co-founder and CPO Krzysztof Kujawa. “Our algorithm looks into the existing insurance policies of our customers and automatically checks for savings across the 20 biggest insurance companies,” explains Kujawa. “Customers no longer need to provide their detailed insurance information. By scanning existing insurance documents to create an insurance profile for each customer, Gabi saves the customer this tedious step.”
“Before Gabi, insurance customers typically had to fill out long forms, then get quotes from a handful of companies and make relatively uninformed decisions, never hearing back from their agent after they’ve purchased coverage,” says founder and CEO, Hanno Fichtner. Gabi is turning this model around by letting the technology do the tedious and time-consuming search for the best insurance, faster and with more transparency for customers than ever before.
The Gabi algorithm has already found savings of more than $460 per year on average for more than 60% of its customers. After the initial comparison at signup, Gabi constantly checks for better offers and functions as a digital insurance folder that allows customers to manage all insurance policies one place. As the customer’s life situation changes, e.g. purchase of a new car, moves, etc., Gabi adjusts its insurance searches accordingly.
Gabi is currently live in California, reviewing insurance for personal lines like auto, home, renters, umbrella and life. Gabi is also free, and customers can be sure to never receive spam or sales calls.
With the engineering team based in Lodz, Poland, and headquarters in San Francisco, the Gabi team consists of 12 people. Gabi was founded in 2016 by Hanno Fichtner, Krzysztof Kujawa, Vincenz Klemm and Pawel Olszewski.
