Bloom uses public-private key encryption underpinning blockchain technology to verify customer identity and to attest to the accuracy of credit history without storing consumer raw data on its servers. Users maintain full ownership and control of their data, drastically reducing the inherent risks of centralised data collection, storage and transmission that is common among credit bureaus (i.e. Equifax, Experian and TransUnion) and financial institutions.

We weren’t sure of what to expect from a corporate incubator, but the BMW Innovation Lab proved to be an incredibly valuable experience for us. It offers a symbiotic relationship, centred around both parties providing the next generation of innovative, efficient, and digital-first customer experiences. The benefits are not just restricted to time spent in the Lab. Through the strong working relationship we have formed, we are now working with BMW to transform approaches to car insurance.

Motion Auto Insurance is modern insurance for the modern world. Fully programmatic, embeddable, insurance-as-a-service delivered from directly inside your mobile app for the gig/ sharing economy, new modes of vehicle ownership, and autonomous driving tech. New tech has fundamentally shifted the world of transportation, but auto insurance hasn’t changed since the dawn of the automobile. These new modes of business models, ownership, and safety tech require the slicing and dicing of insurance policies in such a way that you’re only paying for insurance when you need, as you need, and you’re not paying for anything else. It also requires a fully modern tech stack to properly crunch and underwrite using all the data we now have at our disposal.
