Coming up in October
Peace of mind for the sharing community
Quicker than ever we’re shifting to the world of a shared economy. Data from Statista projects the total value of the global sharing economy will increase to $335bn by 2025, a huge leap from the $15bn it was worth in 2014.
Louise Birritteri is a pioneer in taking the risk out of sharing things. A high flyer in the insurance sector and passionate about the sharing economy, Louise spotted an exciting business opportunity to provide specialist online insurance products to sharing communities. In 2016 she founded Pikl focused on Airbnb, JustPark and others.
The work involved to create a product and bring it to market has been enormous. She’s built a team of experts here in Norwich and raised £2.5 million from a mix of investors including the founder of Direct Line, Sir Peter Wood CBE. She’s received regulatory approval, worked out a route to market and now ready to launch Pikl to the world.
Louise will share the hard work and determination it’s taken to get the business in such an exciting position and her future plans. It will also be an opportunity to draw on her considerable knowledge and experience of working in the sharing economy.
Louise has over 15 years of Insurance industry expertise gained in senior pricing and finance roles with Aviva, RAC, Co-op, Sainsbury’s and Gallagher.
