Hear from Matt how was UpSure came to life:

Through our own frustrations in trying to buy insurance coupled with the paper based, archaic process in which insurance is transacted. We sought to build an amazing insurtech brand that helps tech startups from the early stage and scales with them as they grow. Now we have an amazing marketplace, heaps of perks and a jargon free, paper based experience.

Super product, Matt. What’s your superpower?
A deep understanding of the risks facing emerging businesses.

What’s next for UpSure?  
Global domination, helping as many cool start-ups as we can and becoming a household name as the go to insurance business for the space we play in.
