    Level 8ยทChief Executive Officer and Founder at PolicyPal

    Hi Anon

    Thank you for your kind words.

    While it is true that most that work in the financial sector tend to be males, we are seeing more successful female founders in the ecosystem. This is great to see as it means there is a stronger support system for aspiring female entrepreneurs.

    I founded PolicyPal based on my experiences dealing with the insurance companies. Back then, insurance was still in the analogue world. I experienced first hand how difficult it was to understand the policies and get the insurers to process the claims. PolicyPal was born because I knew I couldn't be the only one going through these problems. Many industries were being disrupted and the insurance space was one that was in dire need of a revolution.

    Till today, PolicyPal continues to stay true to our mission to empower consumers with the knowledge and technology to be able to make savvy financial decisions on their own.
