Louw Hopley, chief executive of Cape Town-based insurance start-up – Root, believes that software has the power to create a better future for us all.
Louw started Root in 2016 with the goal to make it easier for software developers to build products in financial services and has since narrowed in on the insurance industry.
Root’s mission is to break down barriers for innovators in insurance. Root builds the infrastructure that packages the “hard things” behind easy-to-use APIs, creating a new global API standard.
The company provides a complete end-to-end cloud insurance solution, enabling customers to seamlessly launch new products and digital engagement channels through application programme interfaces.
Focus on the critical path.
