RSG196: Dan Bratshpis of Inshur

In this episode, I chat with Dan Bratshpis, the CEO and co-founder of INSHUR, a data-led insurance technology company. I’ve been working with INSHUR for a while now, and I think they’re bringing a cool new way for drivers to get insurance. While they started in the New York City market, they’re expanding! We’ll chat about the unique environment of NYC, why he started INSHUR, who INSHUR is good for, and new initiatives they have coming up.
