Wetterheld: Weather insurance for weather-related revenue losses

Wetterheld weather insurance enables business customers to insure specific days or an entire season against bad weather – and all conveniently online.

The ELEMENT Team understood our idea of an innovative insurance right from the beginning and have supported us in implementing this idea, making it legally watertight and technically first-rate. Instead of thinking inside a departmental box, their approach is interdisciplinary and involved entire processes. Instead of endless meetings, we had milestones and results. This gives us a good feeling.
