About the Workshop

Start-ups face a unique insurance challenge. Do you prioritize your spending on revenue-generating activities? Or do you protect what you have built so far, by purchasing insurance? This conflict of priorities often results in companies going on without insurance for far too long, exposing years of hard work to legal liability and a wide variety of exposures to loss.

The Insurance for Start-Ups seminar aims to demystify the insurance purchase decision, highlight the critical types of coverage, and help you determine what (if any) insurances your business needs. Utilizing a case-based approach, attendees will enjoy practical takeaways that apply directly to their own business insurance concerns.
