History Flashback

How it all began

Getsafe became what it is today due to two coincidences: Christian Wiens, mechanical engineer and now CEO, broke his landlord’s vase and realized how complicated insurance was. Meanwhile, Marius Simon, physicist and now CTO, started a Facebook group and invited similarly ambitious entrepreneurs to exchange ideas – Christian was the only one who showed up. Why did they want to change insurance? Because the more broken something is, the more there is to fix. In five to ten years, nothing in the insurance industry will ever be the same again, and Getsafe will be at the forefront of that new age.
