Goose, a Vancouver, Canada-based insurtech company, raised $4M in Series A funding.
The round was led by Axis Insurance Managers, with participation from Impression Ventures, Real Ventures, and Manchester Story.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate the adoption of its consumer-focused insurance super app in Canada and the U.S. through education and awareness initiatives.
Established in 2018 and led by President and CEO Dejan Mirkovic, Goose offers travel, life, and cancer insurance in Canada as well as the United States. Goose has experienced rapid adoption and growth in the past year, doubling its membership base and premiums. Members can purchase over 19 different insurance policies across 30 states in the U.S. and 8 provinces in Canada including travel, renters, pet, critical illness, and up to 1 million of term life insurance, all within minutes from the app.
The company has expanded its product offerings by working closely with carriers like AIG, IMG, iA Financial Group, TeachersLife, and American Amicable. Goose was also recently appointed a coverholder for Lloyds of London.
