Luko is the fastest growing Insurance in Europe and France’s #1 Neo Insurance.

Today, Luko's mission seems obvious: to transform insurance from an industry perceived as a necessary evil to a service that truly protects.

Beyond the protection of individuals, insurance must serve society. It should be an ally to the planet and to its environmental issues.

We believe that insurance must be simple, transparent and useful.

Our obsession? Delivering an incredible insuree experience. Luko is not just about insuring, but also about preventing issues. We are building the best AI-powered technologies to avoid accidents in every European home.

In 5 years, we have convinced over 200 000 users to trust us. We are backed by some of the most incredible VCs (EQT Ventures, Accel, Founders Fund, Speed Invest, Xavier Niel, etc.) and raised more than 70M€ in Series A & B.

We are a team of 160+ ambitious & creative talents eager to reinvent an entire industry. We are looking for other impact-driven talents to scale Luko across Europe. We are committed to equal access to employment, inclusion and diversity within the teams.
