NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Policygenius, the leading digital insurance marketplace, was named to the second annual CB Insights Fintech 250 list, a prestigious group of emerging private companies working on groundbreaking financial technology.
The CB Insights research team selected the Fintech 250 companies based on several factors including data submitted by each company as well as a Mosaic Score.

Jennifer Fitzgerald started Policygenius in 2014 with her co-founder, Francois de Lame. They saw the pain points of old school insurance models and wanted to make it easy for consumers to get the insurance they need, along with the education and confidence in their decisions, so they started Policygenius.
"We started as two people with an idea and are now an actual company with more than 130 employees, all happening in just a few short years. That shows our brand and brand promise have really resonated with consumers, which has been so rewarding for us," Fitzgerald said. "We're honored to receive this recognition as one of the leading tech companies in the insurance space."
