Lab activity

Primary focus product area whilst in the Accelerator: Supply chain/NDBI

During the Lloyd's Lab Accelerator, Anansi adapted its existing goods in transit insurance offering for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to create a new goods in transit insurance product suitable for covering last mile shipments by large e-commerce retailers. Anansi received capacity from insurers and partnered with seed investors during the cohort.

"Lloyds Lab was transformational for Anansi: we worked with our mentors to adapt our product from focussing on smaller third-party logistics partners serving SMEs to the large retail market. The ongoing support in becoming a coverholder will be instrumental in our scaling journey."
Megan Bingham-Walker, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer ​
