Session Information

Jennifer Fitzgerald is the CEO and Co-Founder of PolicyGenius, an independent digital insurance company for consumers headquartered in Brooklyn, New York. She launched the company with her co-founder Francois de Lame in July 2014 after seeing firsthand the difficulties insurance providers faced reaching today’s digital consumer and decided to develop a solution that would reshape the way consumers learned about and obtained insurance.

Jennifer leads PolicyGenius as one of the few trendsetting female CEOs on the startup scene. She is part of a group of 5% of female startup founders to raise a Series B in 2015 and the only female lead within insurance tech to raise over $20 million in the same year. 

Previously, Jennifer was an Associate Principal at McKinsey & Company, where she advised Fortune 100 financial services companies, major national insurers, and wealth managers on marketing and strategy. It was there that she discovered the biggest problems with insurance: engaging consumers throughout the process of reaching them, educating them, and underwriting their insurance policies.

Jennifer regularly shares her insights on personal finance and insurance tech and is looked to as an expert on the insurance industry and entrepreneurial path. Her articles have appeared in TechCrunch, TheNextWeb, Entrepreneur Magazine, and The Huffington Post, and she has been quoted as a source in The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, The New York Times, and Forbes Magazine. She is a graduate of Columbia Law School and Florida State University.
