Claims Startup Betterview Attracts $7.5M in Financing Round From Guidewire, Others

June 9, 2020

Startup Betterview raised $7.5 million in new funding to fuel expansion of its artificial intelligence technology that helps property/casualty insurance carriers spot and manage property risk.

ManchesterStory led the round, which brings the insurtech’s total venture capital tally to $17 million. Guidewire Software, Nationwide, EMC Insurance Companies, Maiden Re, Compound, Winklevoss Capital and Chestnut Street Ventures also participated in the latest financing.

Guidewire’s participation in the funding round expands an existing relationship.

Betterview’s software is designed for property underwriters, loss control specialists, and claims staff, who use it to better understand individual properties in order to improve outcomes for insureds, agents and carriers. The company initially launched in 2014 with a focus on developing a drone-based property inspection platform and service. It launched its risk management platform in July 2018, which relies on machine learning, computer vision and geospatial data to deliver data, analysis and insights on U.S. commercial and residential properties.

The company’s property data can be accessed via application program interface and user interface.

Betterview co-founder and CEO David Lyman said the company was happy to expand its relationship with Guidewire, as both companies have “a mutual commitment to advancing the success of P/C carriers.”
