One-year-old Frankfurt insurance startup Clark raises €13.2 million


Frankfurt and Berlin-based scored a €13.2 million Series A, the company announced Tuesday morning. The round was led by Berlin fintech incubator FinLeap. The round included investments from Yabeo Capital, Kulczyk Investments, HitFox, TA Ventures, and the succulently named Tenderloin Ventures.

The service provides a digital overview of all your current policies and highlights noteworthy clauses in your policy agreements. They also operate a marketplace for insurance that assesses your needs and budget to make recommendations for plans you can purchase on the platform, something they have dubbed the “insurance­ robo-­advisor.” They went mobile in January 2016 and are available both on iOS and Android. They espouse to have experts on hand to answer questions about policies via the app.

Setup is interestingly simple, if not somewhat surprising. The company sets up a user account for you by first asking where you are insured, then identifies you by name with registered insurance plans those companies hold. They won’t go further though without formal, signed permission.
