Common questions from start-ups
Having the right insurance helps protect you from the unknown, but that doesn't mean you should be over insured. Finding the right balance is a unique challenge that requires empathetic guidance about the many options and trade-offs. With our deep experience helping young companies, we've seen that most start-ups have many of the same questions.
Do I even need insurance yet?
When do I need to provide health insurance?
Should I buy directors & officers liability insurance?
Are there any specific coverages that investors look for?

We know that working with a new insurance agent can be overwhelming, so that's why we put so much emphasis on making sure you're getting value from the very first phone call.
We’re sure you have a bunch of questions and hopefully we’re a good fit, but sometimes things don’t align - and that’s okay. A quick call is usually all we need to help both of us gain clarity around the prospects of working together. Take this first step.
Every business is unique — including yours — and there’s no “easy button” for giving proper guidance. We’ll take a deep dive into your business, your financials, and your exposures — at no cost to you — to provide the expert advice your business deserves.
Similar to prepping your house before selling, we create a custom plan to prep your business for securing the best insurance rates. We’ll work together to identify short, medium, and long-term action items that will help lock in the best rates now and for years to come.
Price & bind
Our thorough understanding of your business, combined with your custom plan, enable us to find the best policy and carrier fit for your business — at the best rates. We go to market - and go to bat - for you.
