Turtlemint InsurTech platform Turtlemint announced acquiring Pune based start-up IOPhysics Systems. IOPhysics’ founder and CEO Ashish Gawali will join the Turtlemint team as their VP – Data Science and Data Engineering, while the rest of the IOPhysics team will join the tech and data science verticals at Turtlemint. As a part of the deal, Turtlemint will also be taking over the IOPhysics IP and Product portfolio.

Turtlemint co-founder, Anand Prabhudesai said, “As Turtlemint goes into the next phase of growth, data science and data engineering have become critical focus areas. Passion Connect recognised this need, leveraged its strong network in the startup community and connected us to various startup teams across domains. We loved the IOPhysics team, their IP and product since it allows developers to be cloud-agnostic and pick data platforms that suit the best need for the use case. We are excited and proud to join hands with them!”

IOPhysics start-up aims to help data scientists and data engineers derive intelligence from structured or unstructured data in real-time. Its USP is its flexibility to integrate any data with any public cloud data platform of choice and data visualisation tool – all with an easy to use interface.

Ashish Gawali, founder at IOPhysics shared, “When we were introduced to Turtlemint, we realised that both teams shared the same passion for improving people’s lives, even in remote pockets of the country. In addition, we have immense respect for the humility of their leadership team and the intelligence and experience that they come with. We’re delighted that Passion Connect reached out to us, and they have been a strong people partner during our acquisition journey!”

According to Sanam Rawal, Lead Talent Advisor, and Ayushi Verma from the Acquisitions and Acquihiring team at Passion Connect, “Over the last six years, we have worked relentlessly to connect founders to the right candidates and contribute positively to their growth journey. We saw the need for acquisitions and acquihires across startups since it helps build teams quickly while helping young startup founders leverage their entrepreneurship experience at scale. When Anand told us about their vision for a robust data science and engineering vertical, we knew that the IOPhysics team would be a good fit in terms of skill set and values. We congratulate both teams and wish them luck!”

Founded in 2015, Turtlemint has a unique hybrid (online-offline) model that empowers insurance advisors across the country with digital tools to navigate an otherwise cumbersome offline selling process at scale quickly. The company, which has raised $69 Million, is backed by Blume Ventures, GGV Capital, Sequoia Capital India, Nexus Ventures, Jungle VC, SIG, Amfam and Massmutual Ventures.
