IA Capital oversees venture capital investments on behalf of a variety of institutions, including 13 re/insurers with a strategic interest in insurtech.

“Our insurance company investors benefit from our cornerstone focus on financial returns coupled with strategic insight into insurtech,” said Andrew Lerner, Managing Partner of IA Capital.

“Our entrepreneurs appreciate working with a financially-motivated independent VC firm while capitalizing on strategic connections into our insurance company partners,” he added.

IA Capital limits its investment activities to North American post-revenue companies, with a preference for Series A, B, and C funding rounds. Occasionally, the firm launches and incubates its own startup company.

The firm has recently led funding rounds for insurtechs Authentic4D, Protecht dba TicketGuardian , Compstak, SmartAsset, Sure, Wellthie, Snapsheet, Marqeta and Credit Sesame.

It has also acted as an incubator for Boost Insurance and has participated in funding rounds for Clearcover and Advizr.

Stonybrook Capital acted as placement agent to Inter-Atlantic Stonybrook Insurtech Ventures.
