This initiative is part of an AXA Group's global strategy to invest in budding strategic innovations in the insurance, asset management, financial technology and healthcare service industries.

The quality of interactions with our customers is a priority for the group, yet improving this solely through our own efforts is a slow process. Bringing in new approaches, technologies and business models that are being developed by young, innovative companies has the potential to improve the customer experience.

Henri de Castries
Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of AXA (2000-2016)

Through AXA Strategic Ventures, we will leverage our global reach, capital and scale to serve as an accelerating force for start-up companies, particularly those who are bringing new approaches to the insurance model. We are also aiming through this investment to better serve our customers and improve our daily interactions with them.
