About Yago

Yago (ex-Seraphin) is a scale-up making insurance simple, fast and human for thousands of customers. As a digital insurance broker, we advise (online and on the phone) and support customers during claims. We grow fast (9x last year) thanks to our disruptive approach and demonstrate very high client satisfaction (net promoter score of 82%, similar to Apple and Netflix, while the average Belgian broker only reaches 7%). Yago recently closed a 3rd fundraising to scale the team and the business internationally.
Yago is based in Brussels, near Merode. Our office is very luminous with closed and open-spaces as well as a beautiful view over the city.
