- Business Insurance, Expert Advice
We’ve all had to buy insurance at some time or another, and you might have come away from the experience feeling more confused than when you started, or that you just wasted time. And as a start-up, you’re probably thinking you can wait to deal with insurance.
We’d like to help you understand how insurance can be used to help you grow, to help you get funding, and to help you protect everything that you’ve worked so hard on. Big companies leverage insurance to their benefit, and so should you.
Coming from the inside of the insurance industry, we’re positioned to show you how to get the coverage that you actually need. We’ve been lawyers (patent lawyers, even), insurance underwriters, and claims handlers. We’ll give you the inside scoop on issues that can affect your business.
Join us at The Forge over lunch on Jan. 28 for a short presentation on insurance basics where we’ll discuss:
• Why your business needs insurance?
• What types of policies cover what you do?
• What types of coverages are available and what’s their function?
• Who/where do you buy these from?
• How much insurance do you really need, and when do you need it?
Followed by a Q&A, where we’ll be available to answer all your questions.
We’ll also touch on some areas of insurance that you might not know even exists, such as intellectual property and patent insurance coverage; and if you’re an inventor, you should know about it.
You’ll come away armed with valuable information about something that may not be at the front of your mind (but will demand your attention at some point). And, we’ll keep it interesting…
