Monica Wilkens and Mylo make the Techweek 100

Techweek 100 is an annual list of trailblazers who provide leadership and innovation to a city’s tech ecosystem. We’re so proud to learn that Monica Wilkens, Mylo’s Chief Marketing and Digital Officer, has been named to the 2017 Kansas City list for “Rising Startups.”

Three years ago, Monica helped transform the insurance shopping experience by partnering with an innovative, high-energy team to launch a digital insurance startup from Lockton, the world’s largest independent insurance broker. (Lockton was founded in Kansas City. No surprise – KC rocks!)

Since 2015, Mylo has steadily grown by providing a digital one-stop shop where individuals, businesses and employees can instantly compare insurance options side by side and by providing custom advice from licensed experts. Mylo has also joined forces with amazing partners like the KC Chamber of Commerce and the nation’s leading digital provider of high quality legal solutions, LegalZoom.

Techweek’s Rising Startup category honors “companies showing impressive growth and innovation.” We’re super honored to join other trailblazers who have been working hard and dreaming big to make KC (even more) great!
