with Christensen Group

Protection at every stage.

In the start-up world, you are faced with a myriad of tasks - fundraising, development, hiring, real estate, IP. Sometimes this all takes place before the product or service is even launched. Christensen Group understands the unique dynamics founders face and the hustle involved to make a dream a reality.

Our expansive partnerships with underwriters across the industry  understand the nature of start-ups, and we know how to custom design programs that evolve along with your business. Whether it is Directors & Officers Liability, Errors & Omissions, Cyber and Data Privacy, General Liability or any other line of coverage you may need, our experienced team members will help you navigate what makes sense for your business - what to buy, when to buy it and why.  

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?

Things we think about so you don't have to.

As experienced consultants for young businesses, we understand your unique exposures.

How to stay Protected
Cyber Liability
When your client's data is breached on a third party system?
Directors & Officers
When your leadership compensation structure needs to be updated?
General Liability
When a lawsuit from a single client could put your business underwater?
Workers Compensation
When you first start hiring employees as your business continues growing?
Intellectual Property
When a competitor steals your intellectual property or product?
Errors & Omissions
When your product doesn't deliver as originally expected?

The team at Christensen Group has been such a valuable resource for our start-ups. Not only are they knowledgeable and helpful, but their supportive, empathetic, consultative approach is just what young companies need. Their guidance has been helpful for our companies at every stage of the start-up life cycle. We look forward to our continued relationship with Christensen Group.

How to get started.

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.

01  Discovery

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.

02  deep dive

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.

03  custom Plan

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.

04  Price & Bind

Plan your work, work your plan. 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.
