Mitigrate is a ClimateTech and InsurTech SaaS startup generating fully automated analyses leading to preventive measures for reducing climate damage on real estate. Thanks to high-resolution satellite images, our map-based AI models and optimization algorithms predict how 50+ climate-positive prevention measures can be implemented to reduce risk. Business value stems from reducing risks on individual assets and prioritizing preventive measures within large portfolios of commercial & residential real estate. Our customers are insurance companies, banks and municipalities, and we were recently awarded a Horizon EU project as part of a large consortium in insurance product innovation.
