DSI ABCs, LLC Announces Auction Sale of Intellectual Property – Insurance Tech

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DSI ABCs LLC, as assignee for the benefit of creditors of The Education Insurance Corporation (“EIC”), an insurance technology company, announces the public sale of EIC’s intellectual property and substantially all of its other assets. All bids must be received by no later than 5:00 pm (prevailing Central time) on March 4, 2020.


EIC is a Delaware corporation headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut. EIC was formed with the goal of developing a new insurance product which would enable colleges and universities to offer salary guarantees to their students post-graduation. To that end, EIC set to work creating a predictive algorithm, based on a wealth of both public and privately held data, which would accurately determine the level of risk and cost of offering this product. Using this model, EIC hoped to offer a suite of new financial instruments which would reduce the risks typically associated with investment in higher-education.

Dubbed “American Dream Insurance,” EIC’s core product would have enabled schools to pay premiums on an insurance policy which guaranteed the income of a graduate over a specified time-period. Conceptually, if a graduate were to earn less than an expected baseline, the policy would then pay the student the difference. This innovative product would provide financial assurances to those students aspiring to higher-education, while simultaneously giving colleges a competitive advantage in recruiting new applicants, and positions the owner of this technology to become the leader in a newly emerging segment of the insurance market.

EIC has ceased operations and executed an Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors under Illinois law on January 17, 2020.
