Once an individual has been diagnosed with a chronic condition, obtaining life insurance becomes more difficult due to underwriting guidelines. Those that have the least severe ailments and have their diseases under control may be able to secure overage but it comes at an additional cost. Bluezone Insurance is a specialist insurance company that is built to provide coverage to those with chronic conditions. The company, founded in 2020, is building a Diabetes-specific ilife insurance product with plans to also launch coverage for those with heart diseases. Behind the scenes, the company has built a sophisticated risk management underwriting engine that uses AI/ML to sort through medical data to make insurance products more accessible by offering cheaper options. Bluezone is also focused on providing its insured customers with incentivized management and adherence programs for their conditions to essentially de-risk them. The company is currently accepting applicants to its waitlist and promises to provide same-day coverage through a digital onboarding process.

Calls for employees to return to the office have been a source of anxiety according to a recent survey of 1000 UK workers conducted by Slack. One of the reasons cited is concern about indoor transmission within the office space. Most commercial spaces do not have the proper ventilation required to fully mitigate COVID transmission and these spaces will require significant upgrades that are not only expensive but also require a significant amount of time before they can be deployed. Rensair has built a portable, hospital-grade air purifier for commercial settings that removes particles from the air including pollen, allergens, mold, viruses, and bacteria. The unit, which can be wheeled to wherever it’s needed most, uses a combination of UVC and industry-leading HEPA technology to destroy 99.97% of airborne bacteria and viruses. A single unit cleans 560 cubic metres in an hour. Rensair is being used in care homes, schools and universities, hospital and healthcare settings, and offices. The filters and UVC light need to be replaced only once a year, making the units practically maintenance-free. Rensairs are available for purchase or can be rented for as low £89/mo with delivery in less than a week.
