Origin overview

Origin is a platform that provides insurance and financial services. It helps employees understand their finances and plan accordingly, whether it be in regard to retirement, debts or mortgage. It can also help to create savings goals, and break down spending habits so users can understand where their money goes each month.

Origin's clients include Modern Health, Clover, Nextdoor and Fuze.

Origin raised $12m in funding in June 2020. The startup is backed by the Founders Fund, General Catalyst and Felicis Ventures.

The startup was founded by Matt Watson, whose previous insurtech company Indio was acquired in late 2019 by Applied Systems.
