The talented team at Aurora have identified a gap in the market for SME commercial insurance, and have developed a really compelling end-to-end answer for all elements of SME business insurance.
We’re here to enable that vision with our network contacts, business and technical skills providing operational and entrepreneurial support for the Aurora team. We love working with dynamic thinkers that harness the power of technology to make things better, faster and easier for consumers and the insurance sector, and I’m looking forward to working with Jan and his team as they continue their exciting growth journey.”

It’s a pleasure to work with Danny and the team at Pro MGA Global Solutions, who also understand the unique proposition Aurora is bringing to the market, and the scale of the opportunity we are targeting, particularly as many SMEs are riding out volatile conditions while trying to position themselves for growth in the months ahead.
