In addition to the significant interest and support MākuSafe has received from manufacturers and industrial end-users worldwide, the insurance companies who cover those workers are also engaging in this space. Worker’s compensation insurers and others see MākuSafe as a never-before-available tool to help proactively mitigate risks with the opportunity to identify safety hazards before an accident happens, or to have accurate information about working conditions when a claim is filed.

Mr. Gross will help MākuSafe work with insurance carriers, insurance brokers and other groups to adopt the company’s technology.  In addition, he will help advise on aspects of MākuSafe’s capital raising efforts given his significant experience in the “insurtech” venture capital arena.

“Jason is recognized as both a leader and significant contributor to the world of insurance innovation and we could not be more delighted that he has chosen to engage with MākuSafe,” said Gabriel Glynn, the company’s CEO and Co-Founder. “His knowledge, network, and passion for improving the insurance industry will be a significant boost to our company.”

Also based in the Des Moines area, Mr. Gross is a 20-year veteran of innovation and strategy in the insurance and financial services industry.  He is forming a new consulting and advisory practice focused on helping established and start-up companies alike to innovate and transform.  He has been a frequent speaker and influencer on strategy, leadership and innovation. 

“I have had the privilege to work with the MākuSafe team from the insurance carrier perspective for the last few years. I am thrilled to have them as a client with my new innovation and insurtech advisory practice. This team has brought unique software and hardware together to improve the lives and safety of workers.  I look forward to helping them achieve that mission,” said Mr. Gross.
