Heffernan Insurance Brokers Participates in GloveBox $3 Million Early-Stage Investment

Heffernan Insurance Brokers, one of the largest full-service, independent insurance brokerage firms in the U.S., is participating in a $3 million early investment round for GloveBox, an innovator in the mobile insurtech marketplace. Additional participants in the round include Mercato Partner's Prelude Fund and other insurance industry partners. The investment will enhance and expand the platform for both agencies and policyholders.

Co-founders Ryan and Andy Mathisen, Sean Mulhern, and Alex Rolex created GloveBox based on their experiences at Colorado Insurance. They set out to provide a completely tech-forward mobile marketplace that enables independent agencies to win against larger, incumbent carriers.

"As former insurance executives, we know the issues facing smaller, independent carriers, including the lack of technology at their disposal," said Ryan Mathisen, co-founder and CEO of GloveBox. "With this funding, we will dramatically expand and accelerate our platform development reaching more agency partners faster and more efficiently. GloveBox is changing the way that policyholders interface with the independent channel and this is only the beginning for us."

GloveBox's technology increases customer satisfaction, reduces service inquiries, and decreases service costs. As a result, agencies run more efficiently and profitably, consumers enjoy better service and lower prices. Since its launch in March 2020, GloveBox has signed up over 100 agencies and is averaging five new entities a week.
