Case study: Introducing Mitti
In 2020, we joined forces with workplace safety technology platform Safety Culture, to launch a new insurance market entrant, called Mitti.
Mitti is a technology-first insurance company aiming to challenge the traditional insurance model for small to medium businesses, with a key focus on risk mitigation to reduce the likelihood of needing to make a claim.
Bringing together the expertise of two leading organisations, Mitti leverages SafetyCulture’s market-leading risk mitigation technology to identify and then alleviate potential business risks, with QBE providing the industry insights and underlying security of an international insurance company.
