Eos Venture Partners is pleased to announce that Jonathan Kalman will be joining Eos as a General Partner. Mr Kalman joins the specialist InsurTech investment and advisory firm at an exciting time for the business and for the sector.
Sam Evans, Managing Director of Eos Venture Partners says: “We are delighted to be formally welcoming Jonathan to Eos. We’ve worked closely with Jonathan and he has co-invested with us on one company. We’ve learned how important his unique expertise as a venture capitalist with deep insurance and operational knowledge in the UK, US and Asia is to early stage companies. To be able to rely on the experience of someone with two unicorns – billion dollar exits – under their belt is clearly a huge boost. We have had a strong year, making six InsurTech investments and have several more compelling deals in the pipeline. With Jonathan on board we have an opportunity to accelerate our strategy and will be launching four to five single purpose funds in 2017 to support specific opportunities. I’m looking forward to a fantastic year for Eos.”
Jonathan has 18 years of FinTech and InsurTech investing experience, including Chief Executive Officer and Managing Partner of Jaguar Capital Partners and prior to that as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Partner of Katalyst, an Internet VC fund and Accelerator.
Jonathan’s areas of expertise include Digitalization, Innovation & Disruption, BlockChain, Customer Journey Sciences, Artificial Intelligence, as well as Investment Banking, Venture Capital and Private Equity investing. He has had a number of highly successful venture capital exits, including three IPO’s and multiple sales.
Jonathan Kalman adds: “This is a great time to be working with Sam at Eos. The InsurTech sector is experiencing growing momentum and Eos has positioned itself perfectly to take advantage of exciting opportunities and add real, quantifiable value to these burgeoning businesses. I am delighted to join the team and help them grow the business further.”
