Zesty.ai Triples Revenue Growth from Record Number of Insurer Partnerships Representing $3 Trillion in Total Insured Value across 50 US States

Zesty.ai

Zesty.ai, the leader in property risk analytics powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), today announced that as of Q3 2021 it has tripled its Contracted Annual Recurring Revenues and achieved more than 100% growth in number of customers year-over-year (YOY). The company’s rapid growth is fueled by the sweeping digital transformation of the $2.5 trillion global Property & Casualty (P&C) industry in light of COVID-19, which has driven high demand for its AI-enabled property insights, combined with increasingly frequent natural disasters, such as wildfires, floods and hurricanes negatively impacting industry loss ratios. Leading P&C insurance carriers currently use Zesty.ai’s products in all 50 states of the US to assess catastrophe risk to each and every property. Furthermore, the recent approval of the Zesty.ai’s proprietary climate risk models by insurance regulators in five states, including the company’s wildfire risk product, Z-FIRE™, by the Department of Insurance of California, drove record bookings. Zesty.ai’s Growth by the Numbers: Increased the number of customers using Zesty.ai’s property risk analytics products by more than 100% from Q3 2020 to Q3 2021 Leading carriers, including Amica Mutual Insurance, Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Companies, the California FAIR Plan, The Cincinnati Insurance Companies, and Farmers Insurance, among others, have announced long-term partnerships with Zesty.ai this year Delivered ~3X growth in Contracted Annual Recurring Revenues in Q3 2021 vs. Q3 2020 Increased volume of queries on the platform by 260% in Q3 2021 vs. Q3 2020 Expected to more than double the size of the company over the next 12 months “Easy access to AI-driven property intelligence is key to helping carriers effectively analyze and manage risk at scale, while simultaneously providing more transparency and a better experience for home and business owners,” said Attila Toth, CEO of Zesty.ai. “High demand for cutting-edge property insights in a post-pandemic world where physical inspections have become difficult and climate risk models in face of increased catastrophe losses have driven our rapid growth. Today, we already help our customers insure about $3 trillion in real assets and will continue to grow that number for the foreseeable future.” Zesty.ai’s products have helped carriers expand across new geographic markets, new business lines and delivered constant value through increased market share, risk-adjusted premiums and lower combined ratios. As a leading technology partner for many top insurers, the company ensures that its customers receive 10X return on their investment.

Pinpoint: UK startup Naurt unveils first-of-its-kind location hyper-precise tracking software that improves GPS

Naurt

Geo-location startup, Naurt, has today announced full public access to a game-changing software set to unlock the future of hyper-precise location tracking. Following a year of beta testing with a pilot group of high-profile local and international businesses and governments, Naurt has now made their first-of-its-kind software accessible to any and all businesses around the globe. The startup’s plug-and-play toolkit currently has no direct competitors and promises to deliver 45 times more accurate location data when used indoors or outdoors and across borders. Current Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology – what most people think of as GPS or SatNav – simply cannot ensure accuracy in built-up areas where even a reasonably large tree can make pinpointing an exact location impossible. Even in open spaces, industries that rely on knowing where something is in relation to something else are still using outdated technology that is good enough at best. Naurt’s software does not replace the satellite location services businesses currently use. Instead, it simply integrates seamlessly with it and fixes the problems that cause the location data to be inaccurate. Where businesses might currently be able to pinpoint a location to within around 20 metres, integrating Naurt could improve accuracy to within centimetres. Jack Maddalena, Co-founder and CEO of Naurt commented: “Naurt is making geo-location ultra precise. Standard satellite location services are no longer fit for purpose and are costing businesses and people time, money and safety. We have created the world’s first platform that is able to improve on this without the need for extra hardware. The work we are doing will be transformational for people and businesses around the world”. In a recent pilot for a large micro-mobility company, Naurt corrected location fixes by an average of 14.6 metres with a maximum correction of as much as 78 metres. Enabling their fleet with Naurt software made it possible for the company to expand into extremely built-up cities that would have previously been out of the question. There will soon be a scooter on every street corner as the micro-mobility trend builds momentum globally. However, many cities will refuse to invite these companies onto their streets if they cannot guarantee the level of safety only Naurt enablement can ensure. In practical terms, Naurt has already improved one of the largest food delivery companies in the world by 40%. Despite unprecedented growth in the last mile delivery market recently, major players still rely on location data that is miles away from accurate. Innovation has halted in similar areas such as micro-mobility, autonomous construction, drone delivery and smart city design as a result of inadequate tracking capabilities. Naurt is making waves in the micro-mobility sector, helping companies win bids through passing safety legislation and enabling them to expand into previously untouchable places. A Naurt-enabled fleet can enforce parking zones (no more scooter litter), throttle speeds in no-go zones and offer smart lane detection. Naurt has helped micro-mobility companies improve their location fixes by an average of 40% during beta testing, eliminating what is known as GNSS drift, so customers and charge teams can track scooters down to the lamp post they are leaning against. “Put simply, your on-demand food delivery service cannot accurately estimate when your pizza will arrive or guarantee that it will be hot when it does. The restaurant cannot tell how far away your driver is or whether to wait before firing up the oven. That means your driver will wait longer when they arrive at the restaurant and fit in less deliveries that evening as a result. Once your pizza is en route, you can only track its progress through vague updates like “on it’s way”, “around the corner” or “nearby” leaving you hanging out the window or loitering by the door waiting for them to get your location wrong – just like last time. But all that is about to change” added J ack Maddalena. Naurt’s mission is to unlock innovation by providing an essential enabler without which rapid progress in sectors that rely on GNSS would simply not be possible. The startup will remove a significant barrier to breakthroughs in emerging technologies and industries such as self-driving cars, automated construction, drone deliveries, last mile logistics, micro-mobility and more. Jack Maddalena said: “Naurt’s innovation enables a diverse sphere of enterprises to improve their solutions, unlock opportunities and break into new markets. We have seen the impact of our work with our customers who, through intelligent location data, are identifying revenues in ways once thought impossible. Here at Naurt, we can imagine a future where there is a new technological revolution based on location hyper-precision and we believe strongly that Naurt is the company to make this happen.” About Naurt Naurt is a location intelligence platform creating the future of geolocation mapping and tracking. Because GNSS technologies have too many limitations, Naurt's world-class team is tackling the core issue by solving problems once thought impossible. The team aspires to make the new standard tool for tracking for everyone. Naurt was founded in April 2020 in Brighton, England, by Jack Maddalena and Nicolas Slack. Jack is an entrepreneur and commercial specialist as well as the former sales director and cofounder of VRCraftworks, a company known for making one of the “10 top VR apps to download” according to The Guardian and many others publications. Nicolas Slack, Naurt CTO, is a published researcher and programmer whose vision catalysed modern acoustic-levitation, and pivoted his attention to geo-location. Under his watchful eye, geo-location technology has entered a new era of innovation! Contact Details Naurt Bilal Mahmoood +44 7714 007257 press@naurt.com Company Website https://www.naurt.com

Great Place to Work® Announces the World’s Best Workplaces™ 2021

Great Place to Work®

Great Place to Work® and Fortune today announced the Fortune World’s Best Workplaces™ 2021, a massive, data-led analysis of company culture around the globe. These 25 global leaders were selected from 10,000 companies, representing the voices of 19.8 million employees in 106 countries. This is the largest annual global survey of employee opinions ever. The 25 World’s Best Workplaces stood out for creating globally exceptional employee experiences. These companies outperformed the competition with their unique and special benefits, robust training opportunities for professional development, and commitment to employee recognition and appreciation. To be considered, companies must be identified as outstanding global employers by appearing on at least five Best Workplaces™ lists in Asia, Europe, Latin America, Africa, North America or Australia. “The World’s Best Workplaces are the most sweeping and consistent examples of inclusive company cultures we’ve ever known,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “In a global workforce, alignment is everything, and these companies are fortifying their culture around the world — a nearly impossible feat. Even when tested by the pandemic, these companies recognize sub-communities in each region and their leaders carry an equitable employee experience across cultures. A huge congratulations to the World’s Best in 2021.” Topping this year’s ranking of the World’s Best was transportation and logistics giant DHL Express, which secured 47 national list awards spanning five continents. Technology firm Cisco ranked second on the 2021 list with 22 national list awards, and hotelier Hilton placed third with 21 national list awards. The World’s Best Workplaces range across industries, with information technology, professional services, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals making up nearly half of the winners. New to the list this year are biotech firm Amgen and software company Atlassian. There are ten re-entries in the top 25 companies — workplaces that appeared on past lists but didn’t make it in 2020, including pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk, which was last named to the list in 2015. This year proved to be enormously competitive; compared to 2020’s results, employees scored their workplaces higher on all 60 survey statements in 2021 — a notable achievement after a year of workplace challenges amid the pandemic. Compared to other workplaces, employees at the World’s Best are 17% more likely to say they have unique benefits. Employees at the World's Best are also 16% percent are more likely to believe pay is fair and 14% more likely to say they have training and professional development opportunities. Employees at the World’s Best are also more likely to be involved in company innovation, as calculated through Great Place to Work's Innovation Velocity Ration (IVR). IVR describes an organization’s ability to quickly harness, mobilize and respond to new information and ideas. IVR is the ratio of employees working in conditions which enable innovation versus the number of employees who are not. At the World’s Best Workplaces, the IVR is 7.2, meaning for every seven employees able to innovate, only two are experiencing friction. At other organizations, that drops to 5.2. Globally, over 90% of employees at the World’s Best say they have a sense of pride in their work, that management is honest and ethical, and that they feel good about the ways the company contributes to the local community. Slight regional variations could be seen, highlighting differences in company culture around the world. In Asia, the Best Workplaces demonstrated an outstanding commitment to honesty and transparency from management, as well as warm, welcoming work environments. Latin America’s Best Workplaces scored high on opportunities for professional development and trust in leadership. And in the U.S., employees at Best Workplaces versus other organizations were 15.6 times more likely to say their company was a great place to work when it showed a commitment to social responsibility during the pandemic. The top 25 World’s Best Workplaces in 2021: DHL Express Cisco Hilton AbbVie Salesforce 3M SC Johnson Amgen SAP Roche Hilti AG EY SAS AT&T Direct TV Stryker Novartis Cadence Novo Nordisk The Adecco Group Mercado Libre Adobe American Express Atlassian Santander Teleperformance View the Fortune World’s Best Workplaces 2021 list.

GRYT Health and Bristol Myers Squibb Team Up to Launch Diversity in Oncology Initiative

GRYT Health

In light of the health disparities in oncology, GRYT Health (“grit”), an oncology solutions company that was started and run by cancer survivors, and Bristol Myers Squibb, have partnered to launch Diversity in Oncology, a virtual platform available at www.diversityinoncology.com to highlight and raise awareness of the health disparities in oncology facing diverse patients in the U.S. As one example of a racial disparity that exists in oncology, according to the National Institute of Health, “The invasive breast cancer age-adjusted mortality rate for black women age <40 was twice that for white women.” The Diversity in Oncology initiative will co-create a series of live, interactive sessions that bring together a multi-stakeholder audience of local and national organizations, patients and caregivers, healthcare providers, clinical trial teams and principal investigators, schools of public health and others. The goal of the initiative is to have courageous conversations about what’s currently inequitable, so that this cross-stakeholder, cross-cultural initiative can work towards structural changes in clinical trials. By bringing together diverse patients who have experienced inequities, alongside those who run trials, we will highlight current inequities and identify ways to adapt the system. The first of four live sessions will be October 27, 2021, from 4:00 – 5:30pm ET and is titled “Experience of Diverse Patients and Families in Clinical Trials.” It will feature an opening keynote from Wendy Short Bartie, senior vice president, U.S. Oncology at Bristol Myers Squibb, followed by a panel conversation moderated by Megan-Claire Chase, partnership director at GRYT Health and equity advocate. The session will include “break-out” rooms where attendees will be able to interact with the speakers to ask questions and to share their own stories and experiences in cancer clinical trials. “This initiative is about acknowledgment of the real and current issues in cancer clinical trials that need to be fixed,” said Megan-Claire Chase, partnership director at GRYT Health and moderator of the first session on the Diversity in Oncology platform. “This initiative is being developed with the voices of the underrepresented communities living these experiences, so that resources and structural change can be co-designed together.” The panel speakers in the first session will share their own personal experiences - as patients participating in clinical trials, as well as those who chose not to participate in a clinical trial. “When I participated in a clinical trial for breast cancer, the research team never showed any care or concern to my questions,” said Venus Ginés, president and founder, Día de la Mujer Latina® Inc. and speaker on the Oct. 27 session of Diversity in Oncology. “When I shared about the side effects that I was struggling with - they would say ‘I will document it on your file,’ but there was no support or follow-up care. After three months, I left the trial and upon not getting a call-back, I felt it had been a waste of my time.” Venus founded Día de la Mujer Latina® Inc. not only to educate Latinas about breast and cervical cancer, but as a result of her experience. In her work, she teaches promotores/community health workers to be more patient-centered and respectful to their constituents and patients, providing timely responses, resources, and support. Upcoming sessions, all available on the same virtual platform, will focus on topics relevant to bringing awareness to and developing solutions for healthcare inequities, including the experience of diverse physicians, principal investigators in clinical research, improving representation of diversity in clinical trials, and new models of academia and community collaboration in terms of clinical research. The virtual platform will provide resources and access to organizations and individuals advancing health equity, as well as the opportunity to participate in the live, interactive sessions to foster discussion and collaboration. To register for free access to the platform and the series, visit www.DiversityinOncology.com. All sessions will be recorded and also available on demand. Source: Breast cancer epidemiology in blacks and whites: disparities in incidence, mortality, survival rates and histology (nih.gov) GRYT Health is a digital oncology company that empowers people to be in charge of their own health through education, engagement and support. We offer a community free from judgment that focuses on humanity and the value each person brings. Our mission is to improve quality of life and increase survival for people facing cancer through the relentless focus on patient experience. We put patients first and work with healthcare organizations that do the same.

TLGG White Paper Reveals the Future of Clinical Trials is Digital; Advises Stakeholders to Prepare Now

TLGG

TLGG Consulting, an award-winning management consultancy with a focus on digital strategy, business model innovation and organizational transformation, today released a new white paper: The Future of Clinical Trials is Digital: Are you Ready? The report explains that digital clinical trials (DCTs) are expanding, and are set to improve upon outdated and inefficient processes in traditional clinical research with improved access, retention, analysis and optimization in trial methods, and disrupt the existing medical research ecosystem. DCTs use novel digital technologies or processes to enable participation outside of conventional clinical settings. The report describes that traditional clinical research processes to develop new medical technologies are plagued by steep costs, lengthy timelines, and high rates of failure, delaying the development of urgently needed new technologies and contributing to increased prices of new products that are successfully developed. In response to outdated systems, benefits of DCTs include: Improved Recruitment: Digital tools can open paths to new and more diverse participant subpopulations, improving the equity of medical research. Increased Retention of Trial Participants: Patient-centric innovations that reduce participant drop-out and lead to quicker trial completion include fewer visits to trial sites, clearer explanations of the trial process, improved communication between researcher and participant, and less burdensome and more automated self-reporting. Improved Data Collection and Analysis: Digital tools and technologies, including automated monitoring and wearables, lead to more regular, robust, and reliable capture of safety and efficacy data. Optimized Trial Methods and Designs: Digital tools will enable advanced analysis of trial operations to help determine the most effective methods of participant engagement. DCTs, and their associated cost-savings, could enable product developers to embrace new approaches to research and risk tolerance, and allow them to conduct a wider range of activities in-house. Katrin Zimmermann, Managing Director of the Americas at TLGG Consulting, said, “The healthcare industry is evolving at an exponential rate and innovative digital technologies and methodologies can improve the development of new drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics. TLGG’s analysis of today’s clinical trial landscape indicates there are great opportunities to increase the speed of research, reduce its cost, and alleviate many of the burdens traditionally associated with participating in a clinical trial. However, the adoption of these trends will have a significant impact on pharma and other research organizations--new business models, skill sets, and team structures will be required to fully leverage the potential of digital trials.” According to TLGG, the implications of the growing role of DCTs in clinical research are diverse and will impact several stakeholder groups, prompting the need for new business models, new partnerships, new operational processes, and increased prioritization of innovations that focus on improving trial participant experiences. Those impacted will include: Product Developers: pharmaceutical companies, Trial Centers: hospitals, universities, and contract research organizations (CROs). Digital Experts, Service Providers, and Entrepreneurs. Analysis suggests that current clinical research stakeholders should prepare for an increasingly digital trial ecosystem. In doing so, impacted groups are likely to benefit from guidance relating to digitization and optimization of products, services and systems to improve user experiences.
