Sotera is an Insurtech challenger start-up founded at Cambridge University. Sotera completed the Accelerate Program at Judge Business School, the Lloyds Lab at Lloyds of London, and has been accepted onto the UK Government's Global Entrepreneurs Program.
Sotera is a computer vision and data platform that can tell insurers what objects are, who owns them, identify known objects, and provide a risk rating for those objects and owners. Sotera allows an insurance underwriter without sector expertise to underwrite complex risk.
Sotera helps protect world heritage, supporting the fight against the looting and illicit trade in art and antiquities by making it harder to trade and insure looted or illicit objects by spotting them in the insurance process.
