Founded in 2017, FRIDAY (a team of ~110) started out by providing digital car insurance. It now also offers household insurance and according to the company, it has acquired over 100,000 customers. “The foundation is FRIDAY’s exceptional digital experience. By offering simple processes and innovative products, we want to become the leading digital insurer in France.” – Christoph Samwer, CEO of FRIDAY.

“FRIDAY is a role model for the future of insurance. Customers everywhere want a new and straightforward way of managing insurance. In France, the way people use insurance products has changed dramatically due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. I am delighted to be leading FRIDAY France to success from our Paris office.” – Jehan de Castet.

The expansion into France sees FRIDAY become a European digital insurer. FRIDAY currently has a team at four offices: Paris, Berlin, Warsaw, and Luxembourg. The teams in Berlin and Warsaw mainly comprise experienced software developers, product managers, and data specialists.
