Digital Insurance Agenda

The Rise of the Platform Economy

Written by Roger Peverelli and Reggy de Feniks - Founders The DIA Community on Feb 28, 2022

With the rise of the platform economy come new adaptation challenges for insurers. Platforms that provide freelancers independent ways of working are increasingly looking for insurance companies that provide flexibility in their contracts. However, many insurers are stuck in the traditional way of thinking, believing that the platform economy makes it harder to underwrite.

Highly experienced in innovating insurance across the platform economy is Curtis Scott, Vice President Customer Platform at Lyft. We’re therefore very proud to announce that Curtis is one of the keynote speakers at DIA Amsterdam (29-30 June).

Lyft was founded in 2012 and is one of the largest transportation networks in the United States and Canada. Their transportation network brings together among others rideshare, bikes, scooters, car rentals and food delivery; all in one app.  As the world shifts away from car ownership to transportation-as-a-service, Lyft is at the forefront of this massive societal change.

Curtis is passionate about creating a future where gig workers enjoy secure and independent work. He is convinced that platforms and insurers should partner together to make this a reality. Before joining Lyft, Curtis was an early executive in Uber’s Legal and Insurance teams, where he had the opportunity to tackle many of the critical challenges facing urban mobility across the globe.

Additionally, he has held a variety of product and legal roles in the insurance industry. In our experience, he’s one of the few people with a true vision on ‘insurance and the platform economy’.


Curtis Scott is also one of the lecturers at our Online Executive Education Course. In this course, Curtis will share his view and discuss the role of data in digital ecosystems. To find out more about the course and other lecturers, click here and request the course brochure.
