Our Mission

Bringing business insurance into the 21st century by making it accessible for any business or platform to offer insurance that’s simple, easy and affordable.

Australia's fastest insurance for small businesses

Our passionate team is building upcover from the ground up as we embark on a mission to transform the small business insurance landscape in Australia by changing how the small businesses, startups and independent contractors working with enterprises and on-demand platforms protect themselves.

We enable any online business, brand or marketplace to become distributors of insurance products and offer marketing leading cover, right in their own experience.
