After 6 years at Morgan Stanley London, Joao founded two insurtechs in Brazil: TaCerto.com, the largest online insurance comparator, through which more than $ 10 million in insurance policies have been sold and VisionX, the largest B2B2C home insurance platform connected to more than 5,000 real estate agencies in Brazil, with which he participated in 500 San Francisco startups.

João is CTO at Lovys. He joined the company at the beginning of 2019 and is now leading the whole engineering department cluster. Being responsible for its organization, delivery and growth, which should all be aligned with the company’s strategy as a whole. He also support company decisions and inflexion points that revolve around technology and software architecture.

Before joining Lovys, Elise worked for more than 5 years in Business development and operations strategy for large groups, SMEs and French and Brazilian startups such as Business France Sao Paulo, Solex, Voom (application of helicopters pooling) and Chaordic (Saas e -trade).

At Lovys from the start, her career has evolved a lot. Through her experience on management and product structuring missions, she brings her expertise to a new project as General Manager Health

After finishing his studies in engineering, Omar worked as a consultant. His determination and passion led him to complete an intensive training in product management after what he joined Lovys to manage one of the core product at the company, the auto product. He is the go-to-person for any questions related to this product.

Handeling the insurance area of the product on one side and improving the customer experience on the other, to make sure that the product built solves real problems and therefore matching insurance and tech on a daily basis

Valeriya joined Lovys as a Quality Assurance Engineer, developing automated tests for applications used by our customers and agents. It was at Lovys that she had her first contact with the world of insurtech. While working, with a lot of hard work and motivation, she completed her management degree at the University of Leiria.

After completing his BSc and MSc in Biomedical Engineering, Hugo got a PhD Scholarship in Biophysics, where he conducted his research at Queen’s University Belfast. The experience in simulation and computational physics together with the full research mindset made his next career step a perfect fit for me: to work as a Data Scientist. That’s what he did, while working in Allstate for 2.5 years, being one of the top home and car insurance companies in USA.
He learned a lot and got eager for a new challenge, this time in Portugal. And that’s when he found Lovys! He is now leading the Research and Development team in Lovys, as a Data Scientist.


To create protection that insures - instead of an insurance that disappoints. To put an end to small asterisks and exceptions. With one-click only your problem is solved. Lovys aims to empower the consumer by placing him/her at the heart of the insurance experience.

Concretely: Lovys offers a monthly insurance subscription as an alternative to old contracts.

The difference? In addition to a 100% digital experience, the customer can modify or cancel his insurance subscription at any time, but also customize it according to his needs.

It's that simple. This is the future of Property & Casualty Insurance.
