Capital raised to accelerate product line tailored to smaller P&C insurers
NEW YORK, November 16, 2022 (Newswire.com) –
Trailblazer Technology, the insurance industry’s first true multi-tenant cloud solution dedicated to smaller insurers, is
pleased to announce the company recently closed a seed funding round led by ManchesterStory, a venture capital (VC) fund focused primarily on the Insurtech sector.
“Smaller insurers have been poorly served by traditional core-systems providers for decades,” said Aaron Shapiro founder and CEO of Trailblazer Technology. “All insurance professionals should have access to amazing tools and consistent innovation regardless of the size of their organization. When deeply experienced insurance experts choose to work at a smaller insurer, they should not be forced to utilize ancient legacy systems or watered-down versions of more contemporary platforms.”
“The capital infusion provided by this seed round will help Trailblazer Technology build out their product suite to meet the incredible demand in the market for a Core-systems platform dedicated to smaller insurers,” said Matt Kinley, founding partner of ManchesterStory. “Trailblazer provides software and a service model which have been needed by smaller insurers for a long time, and ManchesterStory is pleased to be a part of their journey.”
