At Buddy, we’re always looking for new ways to help people be a bit more fearless on their adventures. It started with our first of its kind episodic accident insurance policy that will be rolling out nationwide. Then we created a 10% giveback on what we make to nonprofits dedicated to outdoor education, access, and environmental preservation. We will always strive to make the outdoors more accessible and fun for as many people as possible. It’s our passion at work and at play.
To that end, we want to announce how we are planning to do even more faster by joining the first MetLife Digital Accelerator powered by Techstars in Cary, NC. MetLife is a global insurance carrier and household name for over a century. Techstars is the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed. The 3 month program has an insurtech focus and is designed to take 10 teams from around the globe and give them the tools to find success at an accelerated rate.
We are just a week and a day into the program and settling in well. We have already become acquainted with the 9 other companies who were accepted into the program and can’t wait to see each develop over the next few months. We are so fortunate to grow alongside these driven and diverse teams and to learn from each of them throughout the course of the accelerator. In addition to our class colleagues, we are also looking forward to meeting roughly 100 mentors over the next few weeks and working with them as our company advances.
Before we sign off, we have to thank a few groups of people that have been with us since day 1. We wouldn’t be here without the support of our families, friends, and investors. They might not be here with us in Cary, but they are just as much a part of this journey as we are, and we truly cannot thank them enough.
We are looking forward to a productive three months, so keep an eye on this blog and our social accounts for updates as we take this truly amazing adventure for our company.
