“The insurance industry in India is at the cusp of transformation and we are proud to be playing a catalytic role in this journey. Insurance is an important risk mitigation tool that needs to be universally accessible. However, we believe that access is only one aspect of the insurance purchase journey. Another equally important aspect is informed decision making. Our solutions are designed to holistically enhance both these aspects through digital solutions that empower insurance advisors. Innovation and technology will continue to be the core focus of Turtlemint as we continue to increase our footprints in Tier 2, Tier 3 cities and beyond.” – Dhirendra Mahyavanshi, co-founder, Turtlemint.
