I'm not really certain what void this is filling. As a solo-entrepreneur, it took me less than an hour all told to get Hiscox insurance. What is the competitive advantage to this? Why would I choose this over the alternative?





I'm glad you had a good experience for your business, but I can also say that's not the case for many entrepreneurs we've worked with (we've done coverage assessments for 150+, and that's growing quickly). With Vouch in ~10 minutes you can get access up to 10 coverages, and I'm not aware of any other platforms that do that. In my experience if you need anything more sophisticated than coverage for GL and personal property you'll probably be looking at a process that takes a few weeks at least (and I've seen it take 2 months+ for some of the coverages we offer). Lastly, because we've tailored our insurance programs for tech start-ups, in most cases we're cheaper -- our basic coverage starts at ~$300/year, and in general we're seeing companies save 14%/year.
