Feather was founded in 2018 by Rob Schumacher (CEO) and Vincent Audoire (CTO). Vincent was one of the first employees at N26, where he was instrumental in building and scaling their iOS app. Rob was previously working at McKinsey, where he consulted for top insurance companies to help them improve their digital strategy.
It quickly became clear to both of them that the insurance landscape in Germany was opaque and full of paperwork in an increasingly transparent, digital world. So they joined forces to change it.
