Recommendations

David Deitz, MD, PhD Advisor at Care Bridge International, Inc recommended Care Bridge International, Inc where Christopher is Employee

Care Bridge is providing innovative solutions to problems that everyone in property-casualty insurance needs to solve, and doing it in a technologically sophisticated way that can deliver better solutions for less cost. As we emerge from the pandemic, predictive accuracy in forecasting reserves and MSAs is more important than ever.

Care Bridge is utilizing an innovative approach to improve performance within the casualty claims industry. They apply machine learning algorithms to a large dataset of historical claims data to help customers with forecasting medical reserves and determining set aside amounts. The leadership team has extensive experience in the space and understands how to add value for customers.

Richard Palczynski, FCAS WCP, CA recommended Care Bridge International, Inc where Christopher is Employee

Care Bridge and in particular Debra Watkins is doing amazing work in a field of few players. CBI’s new technology and its access to data is a strong positive along with a strong customer-centric team. Workers’ Compensation is the largest Commercial line of insurance exceeding $60 Billion in premium and equivalent revenue. Medical losses, CBI’s current focus, account for almost 70% of the cost of claims in that line. Thus, CBI’s growth potential coupled with their innovative culture is very real.

Mark and the Hip Pocket team participated in the Spring 2017 Civic Accelerator. Mark has a keen eye for the difference between facts and assumptions, and is open about what is known and unknown with his venture. During our program he made considerable progress validating key customer and revenue assumptions, and is also considerably generous with peers in sharing feedback, connections, and advice. We would highly recommend him and his team for your program!

Hip Pocket is a solid company with a great idea and strong mission for financial wellness. CEO Mark Zmarzly is generous to the startup community and passionate about winning. He is a mentor to startups in our accelerator, and happy to share his knowledge of financial services with other founders. At INV Fintech we have known Mark for years, follow his work closely, and are always anxious to work more with him.

Rochelle Gorey Co-Founder & CEO at SpringFour recommended Hip Pocket where Christopher is Employee

I first met Mark through the Points of Light Civic Accelerator. Immediately, I was impressed with his sound understanding of all things banking and Fintech. He’s warm, engaging and overall a pleasure to be around. He is someone who exudes a can-do attitude and has the energy and passion to make it happen. I have no doubt that he will. It is clear that Mark is a strategic thinker who can quickly dig in and come up with helpful and new ways of pursuing business strategies, including quickly assessing the numbers and helping to think through scaling, financial models, and product positioning.

Mark is a natural born leader and mentor- a connector.

Brian Ardinger Member at GAN recommended Hip Pocket where Christopher is Employee

When Mark first launched Hip Pocket in NMotion’s first class, he found out what most entrepreneurs know: this stuff is harder than most anything you’ve ever done. But over time, I’ve seen Mark demonstrate that he understands the financial services industry, loves helping people save money, and isn’t going to stop until he finds a way to re-invent the way the industry works.

In the last few months, Mark has seen tremendous traction with the new Hip Money app. Traction from his industry, from consumers pre-buying the new app, and from investors both local and elsewhere. I have no doubt that Mark is building the right team to support the dream of a better way to bank.
