Fairmatic, a New York and Bangalore, India, and Tel Aviv, Israel-based AI-powered commercial auto insurance company, raised $46 million in new funding, six months after its oversubscribed Series A.
The Series B round was led by Battery Ventures, with participation from current investors and Bridge Bank. This funding brings Fairmatic total financing to $88 million.
Fairmatic is creating a new commercial auto insurance category with its AI-driven underwriting approach that unlocks continuous savings opportunities for fleets.
By providing an easy way to monitor driving events and offering actionable improvement tips, Fairmatic is giving fleets more proactive control over their risk management approach.
"New developments in AI, combined with troves of proprietary driving insights, have allowed Fairmatic to unlock a completely new approach to addressing the most critical questions in commercial auto insurance: which drivers are safe and which aren't; how insurers can help drivers improve safety and reduce risk," said Jonathan Matus, Fairmatic's founder, and CEO. "With this powerful new technology for improving driver behavior, there's a massive opportunity to reframe the problem and solution from first principles. This new funding strengthens Fairmatic's lead in AI innovation geared towards meaningfully improved road safety and profitability."
Following its Series B, Fairmatic is scaling its AI and data-science capabilities by opening a new R&D hub in Israel and tapping seasoned technologist and former NASA researcher, Guy Shaviv, as the new Head of Engineering in Israel.
