Ladder, the company that introduced instant, simple and smart life insurance exactly one year ago today, has raised $30M in Series B financing, led by RRE Ventures, with participation from Thomvest Ventures, as well as Ladder's existing investors: Canaan Partners, Lightspeed Venture Partners and Nyca Partners.

"That said, we're just getting started. We will continue to lead innovation in life insurance so more people can get the coverage they want and need."
