Coverage Cat

Consumer Optimized Insurance

Coverage Cat (https://www.coveragecat.com) is the best way for people to optimally insure against their risks for homeowners, auto, renters, and general liability insurance. Millions of wealthy but insurance-unfamiliar Americans have purchased policies that leave them vulnerable to million-dollar lawsuits and bankruptcy. Coverage Cat fixes their coverage and offers them cheaper premiums with a focus on the central question of insurance: "how much can you afford to lose?" This risk-first approach allows for policies with higher deductibles that no other insurer will sell you, and enables us to find the multi-million dollar coverage, for truly catastrophic events, that our users need.

I once knocked my teeth out and spent the next few weeks reading insurance policies to try to pay for their replacements. Prediction tasks with software and data are my jam. I love studying why people do what people do, esp. with ads & marketing. Previously: Marketing products @ Google, financial prediction software @ Two Sigma, and catching software exceptions @ Microsoft.

Opportunity: Insurance - An essential product, often poorly purchased

Insurance is an all-time great financial innovation. It represents a way for people to pool and mitigate significant risks when events have shaken out for the worst.

But the way insurance is been bought and sold has generated a mismatch between the protection from risk that insurance products SHOULD provide. This forces tens of thousands of people to go bankrupt every year from risks that could be properly insured– Often while overpaying for insurance that doesn't protect them from catastrophic risks.

Problem: Insurance is complicated

The web of carriers, brokers, contracts, and claims that ensure your risks are properly handled can be an absolute nightmare for people who just want to feel like the things that are important to them are protected.

The Solution: A one-step process to find the best insurance

We collect information on how much you feel comfortable losing, in addition to more standard insurance questions. Coverage Cat then searches across insurance carriers, big and small, to find the policies and prices best suited to your needs. We’re starting with home, auto, renters, and umbrella insurance. We’ll adapt to your coverage preferences, but broadly recommend catastrophic-only insurance. If you’re in CA, FL, NY, TX, or WA we’d appreciate your business, and we’d love to save you money!

Cheers, Max & Gabriel 🐱
