RenewBuy, one of India’s leading InsurTech companies has continued in its growth journey and unlocked value for all its stakeholders.
RenewBuy firmly believes that the wealth created over the years is the result of the dedication and contribution of the employees and thus their growth journey will always be in line with the growth of the company. The company executed its second employee stock ownership buyback plan (ESOP), worth INR 13.7 crore, for its existing and former employees. The second ESOP was executed in the last 12 months and provided encashment to its employees who have been associated for three years and above.
Speaking on the occasion, Balachander Sekhar, CEO RenewBuy said, “RenewBuy has created one the largest ESOP pools for its employees, in the InsurTech space. We have provided the ESOP buy back to employees in two tranches; to reinstate their sense of ownership and align their growth with the RenewBuy’s growth. We would encourage our talent to participate in the long-term wealth creation, which is generated by the impact they create.”
The development came soon after the closure of RenewBuy’s Series C round of funding, worth US $ 55 million in August 2021. The company has grown rapidly since its inception in 2015. RenewBuy has now become one of the fastest growing InsurTech platform in India.
“As we continue to accelerate our insurance outreach across geographies, we are doubling down on technology. We are at the forefront of innovations, and the next phase of RenewBuy’s technology disruption is to use our proprietary AI driven algorithms. RenewBuy is focused on acquiring the best of tech talent in the industry, who will become valuable part of RenewBuy’s growth journey in the longer run,” added Balachander Sekhar, CEO RenewBuy.
