An interview with Kevin Mackey, Co-Founder, COO of Coterie, an Insurtech Insights Future 50 company The Leadership in Insurance Podcast (The LIIP)

    • Entrepreneurship

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Leadership in Insurance Podcast where this week we are lucky to be joined by Kevin Mackey who is COO and Co-Founder of Coterie an award-winning Insurtech that aims to make buying small business insurance easy by integrating it into the apps and platforms you already use.  

This was a great conversation, Kevin was super engaging and we get into it straight away. Discussing a wide variety of topics such as:


The importance of culture specifically in startups 
The disconnect between what people think is their culture and what it is 
How to create an environment - opportunity to thrive  
Simplicity in culture and values is key 
The culture of healthy questioning 
Building culture through the interview process 
Culture is a living thing - it will grow and evolve but can also die 
Language challenges within tech and insurance  
Tech and Insurance product timelines  
Going from Chips and Salsa to Insurance! 
What reverse acquisitions mean to Insurtech space - Hippo and Spinnaker 
Embedded insurance - reducing friction and improving education around insurance buying 
By sharing more information with your customers means you can sell more in Insurance - why don't we share more? 
What brand value means in embedded insurance - would I buy my health insurance from Nike? Where do the synergies lie? 
insurance is a social good? It can be for many reasons - but a social convenience is enough of a start!  

Thank you to Kevin for being a great guest
