Eos Venture Partners is a Mayfair, England- based strategic venture capital firm founded in 2016 by Sam Evans, Jonathan Kalman, and Carl G. Bauer-Schlichtegroll. The firm is headquartered in London and has an office in Philadelphia and operates globally. As of January 2020, Eos Venture Partners has made 10 investments and had 1 exit.
The firm prefers to invest in early- and growth-stage companies in the insurance technology sector. It focuses on Series A and later-stage investments. In their investments, Eos Venture Partners works with their limited partners to accelerate the innovation strategy of the firm's investments.
Eos Venture Partners closed its Strategic InsurTech Fund which has a mandate to invest in global insurance technology companies. The fund was announced in May of 2020, when the firm felt the COVID-19 pandemic could act as a catalyst for further adoption of insurance technologies. The fund included Tokio Marine and Direct Line Group as partners. And the fund invests in companies in the insurance value chain, including automated and AI assisted underwriting and claims products.
Penny James, CEO of Direct Line Group, speaking on the partnership with Eos Venture Partners, said:
This partnership will give us a window into the trends developing around the world of InsurTech. We want to disrupt the market with new and innovative products and services for our customers and being part of Eos' global innovation community will help us deliver this.
Marsh entered into an enhanced collaboration agreement with Eos Venture Partners in order to create risk management solutions for the brokerage's clients. The partnership works to use Marsh's Bluestream platform—a cloud-based digital broker platform to offer insurance products to new customers—as part of a delivery path for new products.
The first project in the partnership is being developed by Concirrus, which aims to deliver real-time analytics to improve the risk management capabilities of Marsh's global marine clients.
