You have to admit, it’s pretty entertaining: The thought that futuristic films from the past prophesied important elements of our modern world. (Back to the Future gets major points for some of its spot-on predictions, but the jury’s still out on Planet of the Apes. But it can be even more fun to consider what the future holds.

2117: an insurance odyssey contemplates what our world will be like 100 years from now, and how the insurance industry will, or should, evolve to fit in. As a fintech startup already doing what we can to disrupt a “lagging” industry, this article definitely spoke to us.

Those “three things the insurance industry must do to remain relevant”? They’re at the core of everything we do. They’re integral to our company’s mission. They’re what League was built on. And we’ve been building and bettering our insurance and benefits offerings since League was founded in 2014.
Time travel—who needs it? Looks like we might’ve already brought the future to fintech.
