MassMutual Ventures and Nationwide Ventures, the respective corporate venturing subsidiaries of insurance firms Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance and Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, took part yesterday in a $4.6m round for Insurify, a virtual car insurance spinout of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Undisclosed existing backers also joined the round. Insurify had previously received $2m in seed funding from Rationalwave Capital Partners in January 2016.
