Derek Merrill, Co-Founder and CEO of LeaseLock

LeaseLock, a leading insurtech platform for real estate has announced raising $52 mn Series B financing to expand its lease insurance product into the first AI-powered financial technology platform for enterprise real estate.

We are excited to back the business as it continues to realize its vision,” said Karim Abdel-Ghaffar Plaza, Founding Partner of Westerly Winds.

“We’re a technology company at heart, fueled by data, and powered by insurance. We deploy our product directly through enterprise property software systems which drives material data and product delivery advantage. We’re doubling-down on our core deposit replacement product, while investing in new insurance lines, payment and receivables technology, and market channels,” said Derek Merrill, Co-Founder and CEO of LeaseLock.
