NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Bestow, the leading digital life insurance platform, today announces its inclusion on CB Insights’ Fintech 250 for the second year in a row.

This year’s list was unveiled on stage at CB Insights’ Future of Fintech conference in New York City and includes leading innovators like Chime, Stripe, and Klarna.
“This is the fourth class of the Fintech 250, and it’s also the most international, representing 26 countries. These 250 fintech startups are attacking an incredibly diverse array of financial services opportunities across 19 sectors, including digital banking, insurance, payroll, retail investing, and more,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. “After being named to the CB Insights Fintech 250 last year, the 2020 class saw 17 companies go public and 25 get acquired.

The Fintech 250 has a history of spotlighting the very best fintech companies, and this year is no different. We’re excited to see how these fintech startups disrupt and transform financial services in the years ahead.”
