US-based trucking insurtech Koffie Labs (Koffie) has raised $4.5m through venture financing.

The two rounds of seed round financing were led by Anthemis Group and Lerer Hippeau. Venture capital firms 2048 Ventures, Plug and Play Ventures and C2 Ventures also participated.

Founded in 2018, Koffie Labs is based in Brooklyn, New York, and seeks to eliminate preventable truck crashes by integrating safety technology into underwriting, pricing and loss control.

The digital platform uses real time data and machine learning models to deliver instant quotes and tailored policies to modern truckers.

Koffie COO Mike Dorfman said: “Trucking insurance today is a mess and one of the primary reasons that a trucking company goes out of business.

“We are excited to unveil an entirely new insurance experience for an industry that has been neglected by insurers for a long time.”
