In a nutshell, we make buying business insurance easy and intuitive for start-ups and small businesses in the tech and media space. Unlike traditional insurers!
Our founders, Cameron Shearer and Ben Rose, created the business because they were frustrated that none of the big insurers or brokers understood digital businesses or catered to their needs. So, they decided to do something about it, developing a comprehensive range of covers dedicated to digital, and an online offering that makes buying insurance totally painless - and better value.
With our own unique online system, we consider all our customers risks individually, placing each with the most suitable underwriter, rather than consolidating into one generic product, or just offering an off-the-shelf comparison service. It means our customers get better cover, a better price, and a single, simple transaction online.
We’ve also made things a whole lot more flexible, with monthly subscription products, so businesses can change or cancel at any time – it’s insurance that grows with your business. Meaning more accurate cover and no paying for insurance you don’t need. We’re also helping our start-up and SME customers to proactively manage the risks they face through ongoing risk management support, rather than disappearing until renewal time!
Our founders, Cameron Shearer and Ben Rose, conceived the idea for Digital Risks while Cam was working at a digital advertising agency and Ben was working for a large insurer. Cam had the task of trying to organise insurance cover for his company but couldn’t find a provider that really understood what they did and could advise on suitable cover. The dynamic duo quickly saw a problem that needed solving and decided to join forces, combining their insurance and digital skills to develop a new type of insurance brand.
