Sam Evans returns! The trio discusses mosquitoes being attracted to beautiful people, Netflix charging you extra for the people you share your account with, and Jada Pinkett Smith’s new book.

Herschel Walker is doubling down on his fake police badge, and K-pop superstars BTS are required to do military service. We have our latest Dancing with the Stars departure, and we learn some mind-boggling life hacks.
Sam Evans on the (mid)life-changing magic of a great lube!
Join me this time as I talk to Sam Evans, co-owner, with her husband Paul, of Jo Divine - an online store selling skin-safe sex toys and irritant-free lubricants. (Content warning, there will be sex chat!) From the earliest days of Jo Divine (featuring the Trolley of Love, tune in to find out about that...) to her starring appearance in the famed Davina documentary on menopause (and the subsequent 'Davina-effect' of a sell-out on the toy that featured in said documentary...) we cover a LOT. For Sam herself, using the products they stock led to the discovery that ingredients in the lubes she had been using were the cause of her recurrent thrush and other infections, which cleared up within a week of using 'skin-safe' products. Tune in to find out why glycerin, parabens, and polypropylene glycol are all things you do NOT want on your lady parts... I mean, most of us are pretty choosy about what we slap on our faces, so why wouldn't we be equally discerning about what we apply to one of the most sensitive (and absorbent) parts of our bodies?? As a trained nurse, and now writer on sexual health and pleasure, Sam dispenses advice not just on her Instagram account, but daily through the Jo Divine email and phone line. With happy customers well into their 90s, Jo Divine is proof that the fun doesn't have to stop, if you have the right tools! We also talk about 'Honest', the new book that Sam and Paul's daughter Millie Evans has written for teens and young adults, covering the kind of inclusive, frank, open and honest sex-ed that we wish we all could have had in our formative years. Oh, and Sam has kindly offered our listeners a 10% discount code: MIDDLINGPOD (£5 minimum spend on full priced products not including P&P) ends 16/7/22 at midnight You can find Sam on Instagram @samtalkssex and @jo.divine and the website is https://www.jodivine.com/

Sam Evans: From Investment Thesis to Strategic Partnerships
Scouting For Growth
On this episode, Sabine VdL interviews Sam Evans, a Founding Partner with Eos Venture Partners, who has spent the last four years investing in InsurTech startups. He is an active speaker and top 50 InsurTech influencer. Prior to establishing Eos, Sam was a partner at KPMG where he led the Global Deal Advisory business for insurance. During his career, Sam has worked on over $75bn of insurance-related transactions and has worked in many of the large mature and high growth insurance markets around the globe. Sam lived in great countries and locations including Australia, Hong Kong, and Switzerland. Today, Sam lives in the UK. KEY TAKEAWAYS There’s so much happening, it’s a super exciting time. One of the key areas for us at Eos is in relation to the digital economy and the gig economy. First, it’s difficult to properly serve the gig economy worker with traditional insurance solutions because they’re not usage-based, not connected, and often backwards-looking. Still, the gig economy worker has become a huge and growing market, especially off the back of the pandemic. It’s also underserved. Second, the ability to transition from protection to prevention within life and health, leveraging technology to proactively manage risk and embed medical, health and fitness technologies to prevent the deterioration of conditions. Third, think about emerging risk classes such as cybersecurity risk combined with embedded insurance mechanisms, these new risk classes are increasingly coming to market. The pandemic has accelerated the industry’s adoption of ‘digital’ by at least five years, which is quite a staggering statistic. Demand from pretty much all our portfolio companies has increased significantly, so we’re seeing it in real-time. The industry’s maturity has also accelerated; overall fundraising levels are increasing but they’re being more and more dominated by a smaller number of companies making larger rounds. The first half of 2021 saw more funding than the whole of 2020, so we’re still on a very significant upwards trajectory in terms of appetite and capital flowing in. We are in an environment with inflated valuations too. The InsurTech bubble hasn’t burst yet. It’s deflating though, and this may not necessarily be a bad thing. It’s all part of the maturing journey of a sector. There’s a significant amount of capital looking to be deployed against excellent business models. We’re always keen to talk to companies that are either on the path to or have reached the series A stage. If you look at the market as a whole, we’re at least 10 years behind FinTech in development, so we’re still at a very early stage of development. This is going to be something that dominates the industry for the next 20-30 years, this is a fundamental change and shift in how insurance operates. BEST MOMENTS ‘Key to our philosophy is working in partnership with the industry, rather than adopting a pure challenger model, which is where we saw the greatest value could be created.’ ‘Connected vehicle insurance enhances safety by improving driving quality and highlighting accident hotspots. Insurers today get better results as they can use the data to enhance risk selection and pricing.’ ‘A lot of InsurTech startups are going to struggle and fail. That’s part of the natural evolution of a sector. I think Covid-19 has accelerated that to a certain degree due to the fight for quality, and the lookout for those startups that are likely to do particularly well.’ ‘Incumbents shouldn’t see regulation as something that’s going to protect them from new entrants. We’ve seen, even in our small portfolio, companies moving from an MGA into a full-stack model with the blessing of the regulator.’ ABOUT THE GUEST Sam is a founding partner of Eos Venture Partners, a Strategic InsurTech Venture Capital fund with offices in London and Philadelphia. Eos is an independent specialist InsurTech investment and advisory business. Eos is today a Series A and Series B investor with a focus on new business models and new technologies that will impact and transform the insurance industry.
