hyperexponential raises $73m Series B to support it’s expansion into the United States
hyperexponential, the global leader in pricing decision intelligence (PDI) software, today announced completion of its $73m Series B funding round led by global technology-focused investment firm Battery Ventures, with participation from leading Silicon Valley investor a16z, and existing Series A investor Highland Europe, which increased its holding.
hyperexponential serves insurance and reinsurance companies in the multi-trillion-dollar global property-casualty insurance industry, which protects individuals and businesses from a wide array of risks. As factors such as climate change, geopolitical unrest, and cyberterrorism have increased the frequency and severity of risks, the industry has pursued next-generation risk pricing methods to augment or supplant traditional pricing models for a changing world.
hyperexponential’s PDI platform, hx Renew, enables insurers to leverage large and alternative datasets, develop and refine rating tools rapidly, and employ sophisticated machine learning approaches to price risk and make data-driven pricing decisions at the portfolio and individual level. Since the company’s Series A in 2021, hyperexponential has grown sales 10x while staying profitable, serving some of the world’s largest insurers, including Aviva, HDI, and Conduit Re.
This latest round of financing will support hyperexponential’s expansion into the United States, as it targets opening its New York office this year. It will also enable increased investment in new product capabilities to serve growing client demand in adjacent insurance markets, including the SME insurance sector. The company plans to double its global team to over 200 in the next year.
