After a long and well-deserved summer break we're back in full force with another season of Growth Leap and we have somebody very special to kick things off.
Our guest today is Fabian Wesemann co-founder and CFO of wefox a Germany-based digital insurance company. wefox recently closed a $650 million Series C funding round led by Target Global and reaching a post-money valuation of $3 billion.
Founded in Berlin in 2015, wefox decided to make an important strategic bet. The company has focused on tech enabling insurance advisors instead of seeking to cut the middleman. The results so far have been quite positive. The company posted 119 million in revenues last year and is on track to reach 325 million this year.
We talk about what it takes to be an entrepreneur, wefox' journey to becoming a unicorn, and the importance of employee equity compensation.
