The Floow joins Prime Minister on India trade trip

A Sheffield tech firm is joining the Prime Minister as she makes her first trade trip.

The Floow, which serves insurers around the world, has joined the three-day mission to India aimed at showcasing the best of British small and medium sized companies.

Following recent expansion into the Chinese market, this trade mission will allow The Floow to pitch for new business in Asia’s second largest economy.

Prime Minister Theresa May said: "Sheffield’s growing tech sector is an exciting prospect for the future of the city.

"With more than 25,000 people already employed in the city’s digital industries and two top-class universities producing the talent of tomorrow, the prospects for future growth are there for all to see.

"The Floow is a great example of the sort of firm that will help drive Sheffield’s future economic growth – and that’s why I am so pleased they are joining me in India."

Aldo Monteforte, founder and CEO at The Floow, said: "I feel particularly proud and privileged to have been chosen to accompany the Prime Minister on her first trade mission on behalf of The Floow.

"Over the last four years The Floow has become a key technology partner to some of the world’s leading insurers, delivering actionable insights into individual mobility from an economic, safety and environmental perspective.

"Also because of these developments, the UK is now seen as a leading force in telematics data management globally, and this trip provides the opportunity to showcase the benefits of our technology to the Indian market. 

"I am looking forward to meeting both public and private sector representatives and to demonstrating how The Floow can support fairer insurance pricing, greater road safety, and traffic and pollution monitoring in India."

The visit will include a trip to South Asia’s largest tech fair and is designed to help boost hi-tech trade between India and the UK.
