Alexandra Gladyshevskaya's SPOKK project aims to create quick and easy insurance for pets against accidents. The author offers “insurance in a smartphone" with affordable microinsurance products and a full range of online services. Users can purchase a policy in a few clicks, apply for a loss online, find out the solution to an insured event almost instantly and receive a refund directly to a payment card.
“About two years ago in Ukraine, lawmakers allowed online insurance. Unfortunately, this market segment is developing more slowly than we would like. This is surprising: Ukrainians have long been accustomed to communicating with banks on their smartphones, but for some reason they continue to go to offline insurance offices and issue paper rather than electronic policies. The mission of ConcordBank is to facilitate the sale and purchase over the Internet as much as possible. Make this process as simple, cheap and safe as possible. Of course, we could not help but support the project to develop online insurance. And the insurance of pets was even more pleasing. We love animals very much. We love innovative ideas very much. And we love bright people very much, and Alexandra Gladyshevskaya is just that. She simply ignited the audience with her enthusiasm", said Elena Sosedka, a member of the jury, co-founder of ConcordBank.
The Bank is investing great efforts both in the technical improvement of Internet acquiring and in support of women's entrepreneurship. “ConcordBank's support for women entrepreneurs is our social responsibility. Unfortunately, it is more difficult for a woman to become an entrepreneur than it is for a man. We want to show women that they don't have to be afraid to take action. You can find the strength to combine family and work, children and business", stressed Elena Sosedka.
Recall that ConcordBank became the first among non-state banks to launch Internet acquiring Concord Pay with options from Apple Pay and Google Pay, which allowed the leaders of Ukrainian online business to double the conversion of their trading platforms and entered the TOP-10 of the most successful banks countries in the categories "Internet banking" and "Mobile banking" at the FINANCIAL CLUB AWARDS 2019.
