1. Acko General Insurance
Acko is a general insurance company. Now, before those words conjure images of beige walls and bleak souls in your head, let us tell you we are vibrant and vivacious, and were founded to break that drab mould you were about to cast us in.
We started in 2016 as India’s first digital insurer, and are currently the fastest growing insurance company in the country. In a span of three years we have revved up insurance with technology and given it a snazzy makeover—we’ve taken it online, wiped out much of the paperwork associated with it, created products that are a cut above the ho-hum, and sold them to over 50 million unique customers.
All this jazzing up has been brought about by our team that is obsessed with making insurance effortless. This team has grown from a small huddle of 6 when we started, to a clan of more than 400 now. And this eclectic clan—comprising everyone from coders who double up as comics to finance whizzes who slay at karaokes—is responsible for other great feats too.
