WHY VOUCH EXISTS
Because startups take risks,
and founders make mistakes.

We know how hard it is to build your product, scale your team, and keep it all together. We know what it’s like when things hit the fan. We’ve been there when insurance kept things on track, and we’ve seen how devastating chaos can be without coverage.

We’re building Vouch because today’s startups face the same competitive, legal, and publicity risks as large established companies. Yet, the tools that help founders manage those risks haven’t evolved to keep up. Today’s insurance is expensive, slow, and frequently unhelpful. Vouch is just the opposite - insurance as it should be.

We vouch for your risk because we know building a business is hard. Getting insurance shouldn’t be.
