Brune De Linares, Chief Client Officer, Akur8

Which key Akur8 achievements made you particularly proud in 2023?

In a challenging economic landscape, Akur8 achieved an incredible feat by doubling its customer base, securing alliances with prestigious clients like Tokio Marine or Mapfre, and expanding its partnerships with longstanding clients including AXA and MS&AD.

What makes me even prouder is we achieved this impressive growth while continuing to significantly develop our product and maintain a high level of customer satisfaction.I am also very proud of the prominent status we secured in the industry this year. Our new technology partnerships with Guidewire and hyperexponential, along with the continued growth of our historic consulting partnerships, and our latest investment round, are all signs of the industryโ€™s trust in us.

Whatโ€™s special about this last round of investment?

This last funding round has truly cemented our position in the market. Four years after Akur8 first commercialized its platform, we are now able to stand alongside the market's biggest players with renewed confidence. Our new partner Guidewire, a key player in the field of insurance technology, also chose to invest in Akur8 during our most recent investment round, which says a great deal about our ecosystem's confidence in Akur8's bright future.

โ€What were the key growth markets for Akur8 in 2023? Where are the next markets you would like to expand into?โ€

Our presence exploded in the United States this past year, with Akur8 achieving triple-digit growth with the signing of over 20 American customers. This marks a pivotal milestone for us, and aligns with our primary 2023 strategic objectives.ย  We also secured major deals in new markets such as Brazil and Canada.

While the U.S. and Japan remain strategic markets for us, our long-term strategy remains global with Akur8 now operating in over 40 countries. As we begin a new year, I am excited to reflect on our significant progress and achievements, and eagerly anticipate the opportunities that lie ahead for Akur8 in 2024.

Our customers by region

โ€What is your vision for 2024?โ€

Our objective is to not only expand and expedite our growth in the U.S., but also to sustain and cultivate our global expansion. We will also continue to successfully develop and deploy more actuarial innovations. I firmly believe that we already have the right business and tech teams to achieve these goals next year!
