EMC Insurance invests in Betterview

EMC Insurance has partnered with San Francisco-based Betterview through both a Series A funding investment and a commercial agreement to use the insurtech’s predictive analytics and risk management platform.

EMC is among the top 50 insurance organisations in the country based on net written premium, with more than 2,500 employees.

“We’re aligned with Betterview in a lot of ways, so it made sense for us to participate in their Series A round,” EMC’s Chad Veach said. “We feel their product is going to be valuable for us and the industry as a whole. We intend to use it in our underwriting process and to identify policyholders who could benefit from our drone-based roof assessments.”
