Building our product from the ground up, five years ago we started by selling simple weather insurance to smallholder farmers in Africa via agents and in-person marketing - selling over 30,000 policies direct to farmers. Since those days, we have incorporated digital marketing, scaled our technology and sold our policies to customers around the world.
We want to help high value crop growers manage their financial risk to climate change, unpredictable weather and natural disasters.
WorldCover’s product vision is for commercial farmers to experience parametric insurance in a way that is easy to understand (simple), engenders trust (transparent), and fits them well at any size (tailored).
We are a team of agronomists, engineers, and financial modelers who blend experience from the insurance, agtech and finance worlds to develop our new parametric products. Our team members have worked at companies such as Deutsche Bank, American Express, Swiss Re and the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation. We have dedicated the last four years to perfecting our pricing engine and educating customers on why parametric insurance can lead to a better insurance experience for growers of all sizes.
