Simplesurance announces undisclosed funding

Berlin-based cross-selling platform Simplesurance announced it has raised an undisclosed funding from Rakuten and its existing investors (think: Route 66, and Allianz, to name two) – stating that the total funding of the company since inception has now surpassed €30 million. “We give every e-commerce shop a plugin for cross-selling an insurance product” – CEO and founder Robin von Hein. In other words, Simplesurance allows businesses to offer insurance or extended warranties on their own products at the point of sale. Recall: Simplesurance is part of Munich Re Digital Partners venture unit.
