Coya was founded by two veterans of German FinTech Kreditech together with Dr. Peter Hagen, former CEO of Vienna Insurance Group (VIG).
Coya is planning to build a digital insurance provider and has applied to German's financial regulator BaFin for full authorization. It plans to launch to the public in 2018.
The company already has over 30 employees drawn from both tech backgrounds, from companies like Rocket Internet, and more traditional insurers like Axa and Zurich. In June 2017, Coy attracted one of the biggest "seed funding" rounds in Germany.
