Sondre Rasch has created not one but two separate companies as a part of the Y Combinator incubator. His latest, SafetyWing, is disrupting the insurance industry for nomads. Learn how.
Services like AirBnb and Uber have disrupted the age old hospitality and transportation industries and vastly improved the experience for nomads. The insurance however remains largely in the stone ages in terms of usability, accessibility and alignment of incentives.
Sondre Rasch felt these pains intimately both from an employer perspective as well as a nomad consumer perspective. He encouraged colleagues to take up the torch and address the deficiency but when nobody did, he took it on himself and started SafetyWing. In this episode you'll learn about pitfalls of the insurance industry, Sondre's entrepreneurial journey with Konsus and SafetyWing, recommendations for aspiring YC applicants, productivity advice for entrepreneurs and more. Enjoy!
