The LiiP with Jerad Leigh and Ben Rose, Co-Founders of Supercede, S1, E31

June 29, 2021
This podcast is also available on:

This is one I have been looking forward to for a while. We have talked often about insurance trading platforms but most platforms focus on insurance with the reinsurance market slightly underserved. In this week's episode, I was joined by Jerad Leigh and Ben Rose, Co-Founders of Supercede.

Supercede is a platform for stakeholders in reinsurance to network and trade with software made exclusively for the reinsurance industry.  

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Supercedes goal of being the Zoopla of reinsurance and why it's such a good analogy
  • The role of the broker in a world of digital networks and marketplaces
  • How our personal experience as consumers must impact how we view technology in our professional lives
  • What can we learn from consumer tech and take into the commercial market
  • The importance of clearly defining the problem you are trying to solve
  • Codifying the uncodified - the culture of insurance and how it can be intrinsically anti-tech
  • Is there an optimum moment in your career to launch a start-up? Know enough to do it, not so much to be fearful
  • Tech roles in incumbents - Maintenence vs innovation  
  • Raising money for a nuanced business
  • The importance of angel investors
  • Sticking with your solution in the face of investor feedback - when to update the deck
  • The responsibility of taking investment
  • Sacrifice for success - do you owe it to your investors and staff?  

Thanks to Jerad and Ben for their time.
