Cyber insurtech BOXX Insurance raised $14.4mn in Series B funding

Toronto-headquartered Cyber insurtech BOXX Insurance has raised $14.4mn in Series B funding round led by insurance giant Zurich, following a period of successful growth

BOXX combines cyber insurance with cybersecurity tools to try and prevent loss or breaches from happening in the first place.

It’s consistent with a wider trend towards ‘preventative’ cyber insurance across the industry, and has yielded significant results for BOXX.

Most insurance falls short of fully protecting small to mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) from the emerging risks of our digitally connected world. So, in 2018, co-founders Vishal and Mike solved the problem with BOXX Insurance.

By keeping BOXX affordable yet comprehensive, businesses and families all over Canada now have total peace of mind with all-in-one cyber protection and insurance.

The insurtech achieved its target of growing tenfold in the last two years and currently protects over 250,000 individuals and 10,000 businesses. The latest funding round takes the total amount raised by BOXX to nearly $25mn, following the $10mn Series A round announced in September 2021.

BOXX’s growth in recent years is underlined by the acquisition of cybersecurity platform Templarbit, which was agreed back in November. The company has already begun to integrate Templarbit’s threat intelligence software into its product suite and underwriting framework.

We’ve seen how difficult it is to build cyber insurance solutions for the small business and consumer segments – it is costly and requires deep technical expertise to stay ahead. BOXX addresses these challenges unambiguously, affordably.

Jack Howell, CEO of Zurich Global Ventures
