EvolutionIQ is powering the next wave of the insurance industry.

We use data to create better outcomes for clients, carriers and employees.

Our Vision is to power the data-driven insurance revolution, enabling carriers to use all available data to deploy the lessons of the past directly to the front lines, making claims handling better, fairer and faster.

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 ensure impact on the most pressing opportunities in their claims organizations.

Who We Are

To accomplish our goal, we’re creating 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’re working where we feel most productive, whether that is in Manhattan, Brooklyn or in a rural setting far from New York.
