About Lemonade

Lemonade is a group of licensed insurance carriers offering property and liability insurance powered by artificial intelligence and behavioral economics, and driven by social good. Instead of brokers and bureaucracy, we use bots and machine learning to create an insurance experience that is instant (90 seconds to get insured!), affordable (policies start at €2/month), and paperless.

Founded by Shai Wininger and Daniel Schreiber and backed by SoftBank, GV, Sequoia, Aleph, General Catalyst and others, we’re transforming insurance from a necessary evil into a social good by injecting technology and transparency into an industry that often lacks both.

We believe in doing things differently, pushing boundaries, and questioning everything. And as a Certified B-Corp, we incorporate our values of doing good into everything we do – from our business model to our office culture, committing to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Lemonade is live throughout the United States and Germany, and rolling out across Europe (
