Kin has maintained systematic, capital-efficient growth, increasing revenue by more than 50% year-over-year and maintaining positive net income in 2023.

With this incremental capital, Kin can accelerate its growth investments, including multiple new markets and products, which will widen the gap with legacy insurers that aren’t able to quickly respond to changes in climate, technology, and consumer preferences.

Sean Harper, CEO of Kin said, “Investors appreciate our focus on the fundamentals – maintaining positive unit economics, using technology for accurate pricing and better underwriting, and eliminating unnecessary steps in the insurance journey, We ended the year with approximately $85 million in cash, which doesn’t include the cash in the reciprocal exchanges we manage. But in this environment, having a strong balance sheet is particularly beneficial, which is why we’re excited to partner with Activate on the investment.”

Activate invests in companies building category-defining platforms that address disruptive global forces like climate change. Sustainability and resiliency are at the heart of Activate’s investment strategy, where its portfolio companies are accelerating decarbonization and strengthening shared systems of energy, production, transportation, trade, and infrastructure.
