Tech Startup Business Insurance- Philadelphia Insurance Companies

What Kind of Business Insurance Do Tech Startups Need?

Picture a tech startup and a few images may come to mind: visionary founders, disruptive technologies, and trendy workspaces. Internally, many technology businesses are operating at breakneck speed to bring their new technologies to market, but they're also playing an important role in wider economic growth, innovation, and productivity. From 2006 to 2016, technology-based startups grew 47%. They are responsible for 70% of business research and development and more than 55% of research and development jobs. And as of the end of 2019, there were over 500,000 tech firms in the U.S.

Tech companies have already transformed the way we live and work and will continue to push the world forward.

As agents and brokers, you know that your tech clients are primarily focused on their products and innovations, working around the clock to bring them to life in an increasingly competitive market. Risk management isn't often a priority, and many new businesses lack a complete understanding of their business exposures. Fortunately, PHLY's Integrated Technology product - along with other complementary products and services - can address many of these risks.
