MetroHartford Alliance Content Manager Nan Price spoke with Aureus Analytics CEO & Co-Founder Anurag Shah about how and why the InsurTech startup chose to create a presence in Hartford, CT.
“To be honest, we explored other places to set up our operations in the United States. Hartford wasn’t initially our choice. But one of our potential customers encouraged us to visit and we figured we should follow the customer,” admits Shah.
“When we visited, we saw that we were probably going to engage with more insurance companies here than anywhere else,” he says. “Another primary driver is the availability of people who understand insurance—whether it’s partners, consultants, or mentors. So, it made a lot sense for us to come to Hartford.”
