Investor Joe Pulitano is President of Advanced Resources Marketing, a Boston-based national distributor of long term care insurance, and Doug May is a senior executive with Willis Reinsurance. Towpath and Anabranch are international investment companies.

"This seed round was led by very experienced investors, offering further validation that Agent Review is a valuable tool for consumers to get objective information and be connected with verified local insurance professionals," said Jonas Roeser, Co-Founder and CEO of Agent Review. "It's a challenge for consumers to find reliable information and agents when it comes to insurance. There still are a large number of insurance products that a consumer feels more comfortable buying from an agent verses an online program. Agent Review is the first of its kind."

Agent Review has more than 200,000 members to date, and plans to continue to grow at a rapid pace. Agent Review was voted one of the "Six Most Innovative Products of 2015" by LifeHealthPro within the technology category, a significant accolade. Read the article here.

"Anyone who has shopped for insurance recently knows the process needs improvement. The market is ready to evolve and Jonas is the right entrepreneur for the job," said venture investor Mike Hurst. "We are excited to support his efforts."
