Vouch Raises $90 Million in New Funding and Launches Insurance Carrier

So you can focus
on what matters.

Protection from the little things that threaten the big picture.

Why Vouch

Insurance is broken,
especially for startups.

Legacy insurance companies are struggling to adapt to the new business models pioneered by technology startups.

Perhaps you’ve heard a broker say
Sorry, we can’t insure you without revenue. Funding doesn’t count.

Vouch believes

Insurance must be fixed by starting from scratch.

The promise

New
experience

No more PDFs, long email threads and phone tag with a broker. Vouch is the fastest, most-efficient way to buy and manage insurance for startups from seed to Series C and beyond.

New
measures of risk

Insurance is expensive when risk is unknown, and legacy insurers don’t understand startups. Vouch has rebuilt pricing from scratch, leveraging only startup-focused data in our proprietary risk taxonomy that is 17x more robust than legacy models.

New
coverages

Legacy policies are confusing, riddled with exclusions, and designed for legacy risks. Vouch has engineered a new suite of simple, customizable business coverages designed specifically for startups.

Travis Hedge

Travis wanted to be a broker, just like his parents, but ultimately pursued a career in Venture Capital at Nationwide Insurance and SVB Capital. He invested in startups that were changing everything, but were held back by insurance that hadn't changed at all.
