Profiles in Risk – E163: Revolutionizing the Life Insurance Experience With Brent Williams of Benekiva

I met Brent Williams over a year ago at a conference (recorded here: https://insnerds.com/profiles-in-risk-e81-bonus-episode-conversations-at-insurtech-rising-in-boston-2018/). Since then, I’ve had a chance to talk to Brent and his team on many occasions and each time I’ve walked away more and more impressed. About half-way through this interview, Brent brings up how the Benekiva solution can actually be a revenue generator to insurers, and something he told me a year ago finally registers in my head (in the video you can see it happen, as if I found a $100 bill on the sidewalk). If you are an in a startup, you will absolutely learn a lot from Brent. Insurance Nerds is aggressively negotiating with him for the rights to his book!
