In the Indian insurance sector, Kamesh Goyal has the image of a founder who does not sell frills or hype or big promises. By selling over 20,000 policies since the launch of Digit Insurance late last November, he has lived up to this image. Digit is one of only two online-first insurance companies in India that have the licence to sell insurance policies. It is also the first one to enter the previously unchartered territory of selling innovative insurance products in India.
Consider this: Digit partnered with the online travel company Cleartrip a month ago to test the market for its travel insurance policy.
