All insurance agents understand technology and biotech, right? Wrong. Unfortunately, most agents/brokers do not have the knowledge to properly address the risks associated with technology.

If you find yourself “teaching” your agent about your industry, please contact us. We are part of TechAssure, a non-profit organization founded in 2001 to provide training and education services for risk management professionals that specialize in the technology, life sciences, and digital media industries.

Members are selected independent agents and are located in strategic countries around the world. Our insurance carrier partners are specialty underwriters committed to serving the needs of clients with customized insurance products, unique services, and proprietary intellectual property.

Clients of TechAssure members range from start-ups to multi-billion dollar public companies – but all benefit from the global reach and coordinated training received by TechAssure members. As an insurance buyer you will benefit from the best-trained advisers who can draw upon the collective intellectual property, experience, and risk management tools of professionals who serve over 4,000 industry companies.

As a member of TechAssure our capabilities are expanded through the collective efforts of other members who share best practices, results and most importantly….bench-marking. Each member agency represents a specific region and works daily with other members of the network to:

  • Serve the daily needs of clients throughout the world
  • Implement risk management programs and training that reduce the exposure to loss
  • Help clients finance risk transfer through specialized insurance products

The standard general liability policy excludes most of the critical risk issues that innovative firms face.  We address these issues using our Ideal Client Transformation process, and designing an effective risk management and insurance program for your unique exposure.  The following represent industries we have specialized knowledge in:

  • Information Technology
  • Life Sciences
  • Venture Capital / Private Equity
  • Renewable Energy (Clean Tech)
  • Government Contractors
  • Media
  • Cyber
