Janthana Kaenprakhamroy, the co-founder and CEO of Tapoly, is a trailblazer in the world of insurance technology (insurtech). Through Tapoly, a cutting-edge digital managing general agent (MGA), Janthana has transformed the insurance landscape, particularly for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and freelancers in the gig economy.

Tapoly isn’t your typical insurance provider; it’s a game-changer. What sets Tapoly apart is its state-of-the-art SaaS solution, which simplifies communication, data transfer, and automation between insurers and their distribution partners. Unlike its competitors, Tapoly serves customers directly while also supporting brokers, leveraging insights from both perspectives.

Janthana’s journey to success is nothing short of remarkable. Born into an agricultural family in rural Thailand, she faced significant obstacles accessing education. However, her determination and entrepreneurial spirit propelled her forward. Despite the challenges, Janthana became the first person in her family to earn a university degree, laying the foundation for her future endeavors.

After immigrating from Thailand to Sweden at the age of 13 and later moving to London to pursue her studies in English, Janthana embarked on a successful career in investment banking. She held positions at prestigious banks including UBS, Deutsche Bank, and JPMorgan Chase, refining her financial skills and leadership abilities along the way.

Janthana’s entrepreneurial journey took a decisive turn when she encountered a personal challenge while seeking an insurance policy for her rental property. Faced with a lack of suitable options in the market, she identified a glaring gap and seized the opportunity to address it. Thus, Tapoly was born—a platform offering on-demand insurance tailored to the needs of gig-economy workers, freelancers, and micro-SMEs.

Despite encountering skepticism from investors and customers initially, Janthana’s vision and persistence paid off. Founded in 2016, Tapoly quickly emerged as Europe’s first and fastest-growing insurtech platform, earning accolades such as Insurance Provider of the Year at the British Small Business Awards 2018.

Tapoly’s comprehensive range of commercial insurance products, combined with its user-friendly platform and commitment to customer service, has solidified its reputation as a trusted partner for SMEs, freelancers, and gig workers. Fully authorized by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and backed by Lloyd’s of London, Tapoly continues to lead the charge in reshaping the insurance industry.

Janthana’s journey from humble beginnings to becoming a pioneering entrepreneur serves as an inspiration to aspiring leaders worldwide. Her dedication to innovation, resilience in overcoming challenges, and unwavering commitment to empowering others exemplify the qualities of a true leader in today’s business landscape. As she continues to chart new territory and drive positive change, Janthana Kaenprakhamroy remains a driving force behind Tapoly’s success and a symbol of leadership in the insurtech industry.
