Jay DeVivo

Founder at CoFunder

I recently founded CoFunder, where I am pursuing InsurTech funding opportunities. I am particularly, but not exclusively, interested in AI, DLT, and IoT applications in insurance. I am also interested in helping non-U.S. based startups establish their North American presence in Connecticut.

I also lead the Risk Management function for Cigna’s variable annuity reinsurance business. In this role I lead Cigna Re’s risk mitigation initiatives, manage cedent and retro relationships, and oversee operations. I have also led IT projects to improve data analytics and claim validation. Before Cigna, I ran a consulting business, working primarily with venture-backed startups. I helped my clients refine their go-to-market strategy, negotiate partnerships, and often served in a product management capacity. Previously, I worked in early-stage venture with startups across many industries.

I am reasonably well tolerated by my wife, two boys, and two dogs. My first attempt at making wine is either aging or turning to vinegar in our basement.
