“You need to be unrealistically optimistic” with Steven Mendel
Have you ever been fed up of sorting your insurance or the costs involved? Course you have! Did you do anything about it? Probably not! But, that’s exactly what this episode’s guest did back in 2012!
Steven Mendel is the CEO and co-founder of Bought by Many, a free, members-only service that helps you find insurance. Since 2012, they’ve seen rapid growth with 80+ staff and over half a million members around the globe. In 2016, they were featured in the European FinTech50 list, and in 2017 they were named as one of 15 ‘Ones to Watch’ companies by The Sunday Times Tech Track.
Further to their amazing growth, Bought by Many were able to do their own buying and acquired the UK’s leading provider of insurance for exotic pets. We touch on this topic in quite some detail so it’s a must listen for any entrepreneurs considering acquisitions as part of their growth strategy.
