Pakistan’s Waada Buys Rival Firm to Become Top Insurance Startup

Waada has acquired MicroEnsure Pakistan, a subsidiary of MIC Global, in an all-stock buyout. The online insurance startup did not disclose the deal’s value. Waada also announced the completion of a $1.3 million seed round from local angel investors.

The company’s in-house platform enables anyone in the country to virtually sign-up, watch training videos, qualify as a gig agent and get policies issued within minutes.

The need is to automate every process, from underwriting to policy issuance, from leads management to commissions & claims, in order to empower agents to focus on selling and not the admin. “Insurance is about selling a future promise, hence, establishing that trust to fulfill that Waada is crucial in distribution”.

Waada’s goal is to add customers through online sign-ups and to distribute 10 million policies within three to five years. The country’s insurance penetration rate is only 0.7 percent, trailing that of its Asian neighbors.

Waada’s goal is to become the leading brand of insurance in the country, distributing 10 million policies in the next 3 to 5 years.

Airlift Technologies, which raised Pakistan’s largest round, ceased operations in July. Vitol’s used-car venture VavaCars exited the market this year and commute provider Swvl Holdings closed daily operations.

Pakistan Decides Against Making Any Changes to T20 World Cup Squad

Pakistan have avoided making any changes to their squad for the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. The deadline to replace any player without any reason has passed. The marquee event will begin on October 16, with Sri Lanka facing Namibia in qualifying round matches. Men in Green will begin their campaign on October 23 against arch-rivals India.

No player can be replaced without the consent of the technical committee, even if injured. The cause for replacing anyone must be presented. Pakistan’s middle order struggled during the Asia Cup 2022 and T20I series against England at home this summer.

Fakhar Zaman and Shaheen Afridi will join the Pakistan squad in Australia before the World Twenty20.

TikTok Deletes Millions of Pakistani Videos

Social media platforms are no strangers to controversial content that gets flagged or removed straight away. Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter do it all the time and TikTok is no different either.

The short-form video platform shared its latest Commu­nity Guidelines Enforce­ment Report recently. The report’s purpose is to “build on its commitment to a multi-pronged approach to stop misinformation on the platform”. During the second quarter of 2022, TikTok blocked over 113,809,300 videos from around the globe.

97% of the videos uploaded to TikTok were removed within 24 hours of being uploaded. 98% were removed due to user reports and 97% were taken down before even getting a single view. TikTok also removed a multitude of spam and fake accounts, but the exact figure was not revealed.

Social media giants have become a lot more strict regarding content moderation. YouTube, especially, is quite strict in this regard. The video sharing platform does not let you make money on videos with abusive language or the slightest bit of nudity. Anything that may have been acceptable years ago is no longer deemed appropriate for the masses.
