I want to personally thank you for connecting with us and sharing in our journey. Briza is the industry's first unified API for small commercial insurance. We are a technology partner for distributors including digital retailers, brokerages and national wholesalers — supporting single-entry application workflows for quoting, binding, and payment functionalities for small commercial lines like BOP, GL, WC, PL, and more.

Working with industry-leading early adopters to power their customer-first digital insurance experiences is exciting and energizing. As such, we would like to provide you some line of sight into what’s happening at Briza, learn how our customers and partners are succeeding in a changing industry, and provide you a means of staying connected to a complex and fast-changing commercial landscape.

Without a doubt in my mind, Briza’s biggest strength is our people, and we recognize that people are behind the change and innovation in our industry. Just one year ago, Briza was a company of 16 colleagues in two countries. Today, I am pleased to share that we have grown to 55 professionals across five countries and four continents! As Briza's work of revolutionizing an industry is far from over, we are always seeking to add talented members to our team:

Briza is the most efficient means of distributing APIs for insurance carriers and MGAs — instantly connecting partners to traditional distributors, like national brokers and wholesalers, as well as SaaS platforms outside of the conventional insurance ecosystem. Briza’s first carrier API integration was completed in February 2020. It’s amazing to see how our growth has accelerated since then. Now partnered with 11 carriers, Briza supports delightful buying experiences for products like BOP, WC, GL, PL, and cyber.

If you are a carrier or MGA looking for ways to efficiently distribute your APIs, minimizing the maintenance and support investment required by your internal teams, or if you are "pre-API" and looking to distribute digitally, we would love to talk to you about our solutions:

Briza is now SOC 2® Type II Compliant. Briza recognizes that data privacy and cyber security are essential to our current and future partners. In case you missed our recent announcement, Briza API is now SOC 2 Type II compliant. You can read more about this key milestone on our blog.

Briza's mission is to connect insurance to the world — to that end, we welcome the opportunity to earn time connecting with you in person to learn more about your challenges and opportunities at the upcoming WSIA Insurtech Conference in New Orleans, March 20 - 23, 2022.

Thank you again for taking the time to learn more about Briza's news and progress.  On behalf of my entire team, we look forward to the opportunity to build better solutions together in the future.

Best,

Ben Munro
