Concirrus


Concirrus’ vision is to support the commercial insurance industry by harnessing the Internet of Things (IoT) and vast datasets to uncover insights to improve risk selection, pricing, and management, ensuring a sustainable future for the sector.


We’re a high growth insurtech business with backing from insurance and deep tech investors, and offices in London, Delhi, Singapore, and Boston. We’re data scientists, innovators, entrepreneurs, designers, developers, and insurance specialists. We’re also guitarists, rally drivers, athletes, and art collectors.
