Insurance for Pre-IPO & Venture-Funded Technology Companies.
Our comprehensive insurance solutions for technology companies scale with your team - from early seed rounds to pre-IPO / venture-funding and enterprise risk management.

Early Stage, IPO or Enterprise

What Stage is Your Business in?

Your insurance broker should understand your unique business, the speed at which you operate and industry specific threats to ensure your insurance covers you without over insuring. The brokerage services you receive should scale with the growth of your business.

We specialize in tailoring services for mid to late stage tech companies, including VC funded startups, pre-IPO companies and companies engaging in more sophisticated Enterprise Risk and self-insurance strategies.


Scaled out of your Early Stage Broker? Insurance for Pre-IPO & Scaling Companies

Everything is moving fast – very fast. You and your team don’t have time to wait for answers. You need expert guidance on issues that are getting increasingly complicated and more regular. Whether you are planning to exit via IPO, M&A or dual track, you need an insurance partner that has been there countless times to get you the advice you need – NOW.

Can you envision your current brokerage team in front of your board? If not, it’s time to talk with our team of experts.

Risk Management & Self-Insurance Strategies

Exits are just the beginning of a company’s new chapter. Cultural, philosophical and financial metrics will likely reshape how your company addresses risk going forward. Now, more than ever, is not the time to relax on rethinking your risk management strategy. Insurance procurement is typically the least effective risk transfer, so what discussions are you having to talk about alternatives?

Our team of experts have decades of experience building alternative risk, self-insurance and captive programs.



Insurance for Your Growing Technology Business

Getting your business off the ground without spending all your funding on the expense of insurance products is a balancing act that is only done well if your broker has the experience to know what is important - and what is not.

Start-ups don’t always fit in a box, and neither should your broker’s strategy.
