“It’s an honor to be recognized in the broader fintech space by being included in this distinguished list of innovative companies,” said David McFarland, CEO of Coterie Insurance. “With half of all small businesses without insurance, we’re grateful to be playing a role in delivering the tech and insurance platform insurance agents and brokers need to help insure our country’s hardworking small business owners.”
Coterie Insurance launched in 2018 to make the small commercial insurance process easier and faster for everyone involved. Since then, Coterie has worked with partners and insurance agents to deliver insurance to small business owners when they need it. With automated underwriting, Coterie delivers near-instant quotes to help agents and brokers deliver the coverage busy small business owners need.
