Dan Keough, Holmes Murphy Chairman & CEO, on how BrokerTech Ventures is Changing Our Industry

Prioritizing Innovation to Create Powerful Business Outcomes

At Holmes Murphy, we remain committed to driving innovation. Our goal will always be to deliver technology to our clients to identify risks sooner, drive down costs faster, and help their business succeed. With BrokerTech Ventures (BTV), we are bending the innovative curve through strategic partnerships with some of the greatest insurtech forces in the industry.

Innovation can be the key to staying on top of your customer’s needs, creating value, and fostering company growth. Our proactive approach to continuously innovate allows you to solve your customers’ problems before they even know they have them.

What Is BTV?

BTV is the first insurance broker-led convening platform and accelerator program focused on delivering innovation to the insurance broker and holistic industry to help clients identify risks sooner and drive down costs faster. It was co-founded in mid-2019, majority-funded, and led by Holmes Murphy. While we have investors and leaders spanning the country and globally, the genesis of BTV has been sparked by the thought leaders within Holmes Murphy.

BTV Accelerator

Our BTV Accelerator brings broker-centric, early-stage insurtech startups together to provide seed funding, a hyper-accelerated curriculum, and direct access to our agency and non-agency mentor circuit. In addition, we bring opportunities for distribution, stakeholder engagement, and access to additional capital. Our accelerator fosters a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship within the broker-centric insurtech space with continued support beyond accelerator graduation. We offer opportunities for our startups to engage with InsurTech Connect and ongoing brand support amplified through our Media and Communications Tower.

Agency + Insurance Company Partnerships

BTV began with five insurance broker agencies as the original owners – Holmes Murphy being a co-founder and majority shareholder. We slowly expanded our brokerage partnerships, and BTV now proudly represents some of the most sizable and innovative independent brokerages spanning from Silicon Valley to New Jersey.

Once we assembled a blue-ribbon roster of agencies, we expanded our official relationships with insurance companies. We now represent some of the most notable and well respected regional and international insurance companies, including Travelers, Zurich North America, the best agent and broker-focused carriers, top three wholesalers, and one of the industry’s most innovative insurance benefits carriers.

Effectively, BTV has constructed a premiere team, and we are just getting started!

Global Impact

In early 2021, BTV, along with Holmes Murphy as a co-founder, announced our first international expansion in partnership with InsurTech Israel and Ayalon Insurance Co., creating the Israeli InsurTech Accelerator – the first broker-led Accelerator model in Israel. BTV has also teamed up with insurance leaders in Latin America to launch and fuel The LATAM Insurtech Accelerator (LATAMIA). We intend to build similar models with broker communities in Europe, where these platforms would perform as a feeder system into our BTV Accelerator and investment model in the United States.
