Marjory est la premier projet incubé par Area42, le laboratoire d’innovation créé par Credendo, l’agence belge d’assurance crédit à l’export.
Marjory, a tech startup which enables service providers such as insurers and fintechs to integrate into marketplace operator systems, has launched in a private beta. Kamel Tansaout, CEO of the company, tells GTR that the beta involves a European e-tailer, which currently operates one of the biggest marketplaces in the region, as well as selected service providers.
As trade becomes more platform-based, with new paradigms such as blockchain, which facilitates more open account trade, and 3D printing, which shortens the supply chain, the traditional model of trade insurance risks becoming obsolete. Speaking to GTR in February, Christophe Spoerry, who leads Area42, explained that solutions such as Marjory, while outside of the traditional remit of export credit, will serve as a way for insurers to reach new clients, particularly given the explosive growth in e-commerce in recent years.
