πŸ‘‹πŸ½ Hi there

2.3 billion people worldwide are not protected from the risks they face in their daily lives. These people try to build a successful life for themselves and their families, but any of those risks can set them back by years.

Curacel's mission is to change that by making it easy and pleasant to get risk protection anywhere, especially in emerging markets. We are doing this by building infrastructure.

Since 2019, our claims platform has allowed 600+ hospitals and 10+ insurers from several African nations to speed up claims processing by 70%, saving insurers 25% of previously lost revenue, that they can allocate to creating more inclusive products.
