BrokerTech Ventures Announces Four New Investment Partners

BrokerTech Ventures, the industry’s first broker-led investor group and
accelerator program, has added four new investor partners, including Assurance,
Graham Company, InterWest Insurance Services, and Hylant Insurance.
These new investor partners join the current owners — Holmes Murphy, M3 Insurance, PayneWest
Insurance, ABD Insurance & Financial Services, and Conner Strong & Buckelew. The nine privately held, like-
minded agencies combined represent more than $1 billion in annual revenues.

“With the addition of these four agency partners, the BrokerTech Ventures network now spans the country,
allowing us to be the first to stake our position in cultivating, curating, and fostering innovation for brokers,”
said Dan Keough, Holmes Murphy chairman and CEO and BrokerTech Ventures co-founder. “These
BrokerTech Ventures partners are agency leaders with a commitment to innovation and thought leadership,
and we’re excited to have their cutting-edge ideas at the table.”

BrokerTech Ventures’ highly intentional accelerator curriculum will include a veteran mentoring network,
seed funding for a portion of the chosen startups’ research and testing, and a distribution platform to deploy
the technologies. Additionally, the agency partners will play an integral role in the mentoring components of
the accelerator and also gain access to early engagement with our selected startup entrepreneurs.
“With these recent developments, we are celebrating the fact that we can move farther and faster down the
innovation curve,” said Mike Victorson, M3 Insurance president and CEO and BrokerTech Ventures co-

The window for startup companies to apply for a spot in the first BrokerTech Ventures cohort will open in
late October of this year, with program launch planned for February 2020. A targeted, executive search is in
progress for the organization’s first managing director.
