Embroker, the leading digital insurance brokerage in the United States, announces The 2020 Embroker 200 Top Startups. Ease, the country’s leading benefits and HR administration software for small businesses, powered by insurance brokers, placed 47th out of the list of 200.
The Embroker 200 Top Startups list ranks the fastest-growing startups across over 40 industries around the world. All startups are ranked based on a calculation of the most popular startup per dollar of funding. Embroker weighted total external media mentions and total social engagement, then compared it to total funding. The score was finalized by a judging panel that assessed each company’s innovation and impact.
The result is a comprehensive list of companies the brokerage believes will fundamentally change society. “The unparalleled innovation and technology behind these startups is the reason they are not just solving our modern-day problems, but changing the world.” the Embroker 200 report stated.
This is another in a line of honors for Ease this year, including Forbes 500 Best Startups and G2’S Best Software Companies 2020. This announcement comes on the heels of a challenging 2020, but the company has kept its success by adding new partners such as Unum, Lincoln Financial Group, and VSP and reshaping the way over 1,500 insurance brokers—and the employers they serve—do business.
