About Us

Blink Innovation was founded by Paul Prendergast (CEO) and Peter Bermingham (CTO) in 2016.

Based in Cork, Ireland, the company was acquired in March 2017 by CPPGroup Plc (a UK AIM listed company) one of the early InsurTech acquisitions globally. Blink continues to transform the insurance market through its proprietary insurtech platform, Blink Parametric, enabling the building of innovative solutions for its insurance partners globally. It offers transformative parametric insurance solutions covering climate, energy, utilities and travel risk, each with a focus on delivering a superior service for clients. The Blink Parametric platform is partnering globally with insurance and financial services companies driving innovation in Asia, Europe and North America.
