If you're a new startup and need or want insurance, there is no better option. I must have called almost EVERY traditional insurance company and insurance broker before someone told me about Founder Shield. They understand novel/creative new business models and were the only company that "got it". In addition, they were able to help get something in place quickly, to address a time sensitive opportunity.

I think Founder Shield is great! They are always willing to go the extra mile in helping my company understand the complex insurance requirements that our customers have.

I like that I can manage my business insurance 100% online. No need for appointments or phone calls necessary.

FounderShield was easy to work with. The people were all professional and responsive. The reason for four stars and not five is that we needed a specific Endorsement (a CG 20) required by our landlord (a government entity). After some back-and-forth, we were finally told that "CHUBB, does not produce the specific form the entity is requesting." We are still waiting for a response from our landlord (the City of San Francisco) on whether they will accept the alternate form that was provided. If not, then we are going to have to find other insurance.

In general, responsiveness to current issues is A+. Also, ability to quickly provide workable solutions to problems is A+. Not yet rating VERY GOOD due to the fact that one big issue was a combo of FS and company inattention. Had FS been on the ball, there would have been no problem. In the end though, I've been a CFO for over 20 years and FS is far more efficient to deal with than either local agencies or the large national brokers.

Generally a good system and pretty good customer service. There are annoyances though here and there as not of the process is online and still requires "old school" paperwork and odd payment situations.
