ABOUT

EvolutionIQ is powering a once-in-a-generation transformation of the insurance industry’s claims methodologies

AI-powered claims guidance drives action on the right claim at the right time to help more sick or injured claimants recover – and do so sooner.

Our Mission is to improve the lives of injured and disabled workers and enable them to return to the workforce, saving billions of dollars in avoidable costs and lost productivity to the US and global economies.

Our Vision is to become the industry standard Claims Guidance platform that transforms bodily injury claims globally.

Our Strategy

We work with leading carriers across major lines of business to unlock the value in their own data, supercharge insights with our own proprietary data and AI, and ensure impact on the most pressing opportunities in their claims organizations.

Who We Are

To accomplish our goal, we’ve created a team that can bring the most advanced technology in the world into an industry known for risk aversion and methodical progress. We find that the best products are made with the input of those from business and technical backgrounds, insurance and non-insurance, all working together with freedom to dissent and add constructive critique.

Before coming together at EvolutionIQ, members of our team were at the forefront of technology, finance and insurance, some leading global teams and others as a team of one. While our business is based in New York, since the start of the pandemic we’ve been working where we feel most productive, whether that is in Manhattan, Brooklyn or anywhere in the US. We fly our remote team members to NYC periodically so they can stay connected with the team.

Our Investors

On February 28, 2023 we announced our Series B funding. Brewer Lane Ventures led the round, with participation from all major existing investors including First Round Capital, FirstMark Capital and Foundation Capital, and joined by Principal Financial Group®, the major insurance company and existing EvolutionIQ customer.
