Vancouver-based Goose has raised a $2.25 million seed round led by Impression Ventures.
Launched earlier this month, the Goose mobile app provides Canadians with instant access to travel medical insurance.
This mobile-first, self-serve solution allows Canadians who travel out of country to purchase travel medical insurance in under 60 seconds through the Goose mobile app (iOS & Android), for as little as $4, and available for up to seven days after a vacation has begun.
“We know that if travel insurance is more accessible and affordable, Canadians will opt in and avoid thousands of dollars in medical bills during a travel emergency,” says Dejan Mirkovic, Founder & CEO of Goose Insurance Services as well as Co-Founder & Director of Square One Insurance Services.
“Square One modernized home insurance solutions for Canadians, and now Goose is poised to do the same for travel insurance. Consumers deserve to have access, transparency and convenience when it comes to their insurance.”
“Insurance is a space that is ripe for digital transformation and we’re thrilled to support the incredible team at Goose as they take off and modernize the insurance industry,” says Maor Amar, Managing Partner Impression Ventures.
“We’re excited to start seeing the positive effects that affordable and convenient travel insurance can have on Canadians.”
