Santa Barbara, CA, January 30, 2024 – Carpe Data, the next-generation online data provider for insurers, today announced Authentic will integrate Minerva, an emerging and predictive business classification data solution, into its disruptive captive insurance infrastructure tool. Authentic is an emerging player empowering organizations outside of traditional insurance to launch hyper-tailored captive insurance programs. By integrating Carpe Data’s Minerva platform into its infrastructure tool, Authentic brings efficiency and automation to captive insurance while providing tailored coverage to specific small business markets, such as gyms, restaurants, retail stores, etc.

“Underwriting SMB commercial insurance is time intensive because it’s complex — creating a vacuum in alternative distribution channels due to underwriting inefficiencies and low profit margins,” said Max Drucker, CEO of Carpe Data. “Authentic is filling this void through its tech-forward, disruptive approach. Minerva sources hundreds of unique data points on businesses and uses a combination of AI and advanced data science techniques to extract relevant, accurate and predictive insights on these companies. This will help Authentic’s partners better classify and select commercial risks with greater speed and accuracy than traditional methods.”

The Authentic platform will directly interface with Carpe Data’s Minerva suite to source valuable insights from Minerva to enhance Authentic’s policy system, facilitating a deeper understanding of businesses at quote. The integration will strengthen Authentic’s focus on increasing automation for niche insurers, aligning with its goal to streamline insurance process efficiency while improving insurance outcomes– all delivered natively to businesses within Authentic’s network.
