Federato, a San Francisco, CA-based RiskOps underwriting platform, has recently secured $25 million in Series B funding.
The round was led by Caffeinated Capital, with participation from Emergence Capital and Pear VC. This latest round of funding comes less than a year after the company's Series A announcement.
The new funds will accelerate Federato's growth and support its mission to bring efficient underwriting and data-driven portfolio management to P&C and specialty insurance.
Federato's RiskOps provides a real-time platform for both individual risk underwriting and portfolio optimization. Key to the platform's efficacy is the underlying federated data graph, which enables a single pane of glass view of client information and allows for AI to proactively recommend the next best actions to users, bridging the art and science of underwriting.
"Federato's foundation lies in deep research around how AI can work together with humans towards complex end goals," said William Steenbergen, CTO and Co-Founder of Federato, whose graduate work at Stanford's Human Computer Interaction Group centered around these algorithms. "Our customers are proving that while generative AI has created recent buzz, many other AI use cases are benefitting from the same underpinning innovations. In insurance, the impact of helping a group of underwriters work towards the coordinated end goal of a balanced, growing risk portfolio is crucial.We are excited to be several years ahead of the curve in applying a broad range of machine learning techniques to ensure AI makes an impact in this important industry."
