What Inspired the Creation of AutoGenius?

In an interview with TechCabal, Kola Oyeneyin, Founder, AutoGenius has this to say:
“About 8 years ago while living and working in the UK. I came back from work tired and so I forgot my wallet in my car in a very visible area near the gear stick. The car was parked in an underground car park where you’d think that security should be pretty tight. However, about an hour later after I remembered my wallet and ran back downstairs to check the car, “hoodie” boys had burgled my car, taken my wallet and everything inside. I mean if you know Manchester very well, that’s an everyday occurrence. What you do normally is to cancel all your debit and credit cards and begin all over again with banks’ issuance.
This was where my love for insurance began! I called my insurance company, I’d just bought their cover via an insurance comparison platform. I reported the theft and burglar case, and made a claim. Within one hour, Glass Fix UK’s van had arrived at my apartment, cleaned up my car of the broken glass. They brought the exact type of glass for my car, fixed the broken door, installed the new glass. All of this happened in less than thirty minutes. I was in love with them and with insurance!
3 years later, I hit a car that ran from a minor road into my part (it wasn’t my fault, haha). My car was totalled. The police came and filed their report. I sent a copy of the police report to my insurance company. Within 24 hours, they sent me a replacement and about a week later, I was paid the market value of that car, to buy a new one.
I realized that Insurance worked. I had tasted the value of insurance and I loved it.
Fast forward to Nigeria. I’ve been hit several times by people who don’t have insurance cover. I have heard so many stories of insurance companies that don’t pay claims. Friends and family members have been victims of fake insurance licenses bought from some random person that we now refer to as “One Guy Like That”.
I believe that I can redefine the insurance industry in Nigeria just by injecting some innovation that ensures convenience, trust, transparency, access and value. It is one of the oldest industries in Nigeria that hasn’t seen much of technologically advancement. That’s what we’ve brought in. This is what we’re good at, at Venia. Imagine the insurance industry experiencing a revolution like the banking sector did? The impact it’d have on our economy and the lives of every Nigerian?”
