Meet Spixii

The London-based insurance startup is one of five teams selected to the Allianz France Accelerator program. Think: automated digital agent, aka ‘chatbot’. If you’re wondering ‘what’s in a name’, the founders liked the idea of branding themselves with a gender neutral parrot that sits on your shoulder and talks to you. Recall: Echosage, the robo insurance advisor that allows you to clone your agent, and Insurify, which earlier this year launched Evia (Expert Virtual Insurance Agent), an artificially intelligent virtual insurance agent that aims to find you better car insurance using a photo of your license plate.
