BrokerTech Ventures outlines its mission through five “Towers of Operation”: the BrokerTech Ventures Accelerator, early-stage investments, innovation, capital and media/communications. The company is the Business Record’s 2021 innovationLEADER Award recipient.
BrokerTech Ventures partners with 13 brokerage firms to serve startups designed to address specific needs of insurance agents and brokers. The team launched the inaugural five-week accelerator cohort virtually in 2020, graduating 12 international broker-centric startups. The accelerator offers more than $500,000 in seed funding, which is up to $50,000 each to accepted startups. In December, BrokerTech Ventures announced its first international partnership with Insurtech Israel, co-founding the Israeli InsurTech Accelerator in Tel Aviv using BrokerTech Venture’s program as a model.
BrokerTech Ventures is led by co-CEOs Dan Keough and Mike Victorson, chief operating officer Susan Hatten, executive director of the accelerator John Jackovin and executive sponsor Ellen Willadsen. Below, Hatten shares the organization’s approach to leadership.
