KATE STILL­WELL

Founder, Jump­start

Digital Insurance - - THE INNOVATORS -

Af­ter 20 years as a struc­tural en­gi­neer, Still­well re­al­ized that peo­ple in earth­quake zones needed eas­ier-to-ac­cess fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity for re­siliency in case the worse hap­pens. That led her to found Jump­start, a para­met­ric in­sur­ance prod­uct that trig­gers a pay­ment as soon as a shak­ing event is de­tected in a pol­i­cy­holder's area, with fully mo­bile en­roll­ment and com­mu­ni­ca­tions ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Jump­start will sell its first poli­cies this year.
