Successful exit for High-Tech Gründerfonds – TA Associates completes investment in tech11

December 10, 2021

  • TA completes strategic growth investments in both tech11 and Adcubum AG with the aim of developing a leading European software provider for health and P&C insurance
  • Würzburg-based insurtech tech11 provides a core insurance platform for P&C insurers

Bonn, December 10, 2021 – tech11 GmbH has been on the market for around three years and has developed into a fast-growing provider of insurance software for property and casualty (P&C) insurance companies in Germany and Europe. Adcubum AG is a leading Swiss provider of standard software for health and P&C insurance. The investment by TA Associates, a global growth private equity firm, and the cooperation between the two companies Adcubum and tech11 will generate synergies that help accelerate expansion into new markets and business lines. The aim is to build a European insurance powerhouse.

Insurers continue to face high pressure to innovate. Customer expectations are changing as digitalization progresses. In the private insurance lines of business, it is the younger generations in particular who are demanding simplicity, seamless online services, and flexibility. Business customers are looking for solutions to insure against completely new types of risks in their industries. To respond to these developments and trends and to leverage the potential for growth, technology is key. Against this backdrop, the capabilities of the core insurance systems are crucial to the future competitiveness of any insurer.

tech11’s insurance platform has a great future for the digitalization of the insurance industry. We are pleased that tech11 has been able to attract experienced and strong partners with Adcubum and TA and we believe the companies can together establish a new European champion.

Dominik Lohle, Investment Manager at HTGF

From the very beginning, our goal has been to develop a standardized insurance platform for the European market in order to create a central vehicle for digital transformation both for German customers and internationally operating insurance companies. We look forward to joining forces with TA and Adcubum to develop a European champion and would like to explicitly thank HTGF for our very good cooperation, which has been an essential milestone for the further development of tech11.
