Director of Insurtech Partnerships

About Boost: The Next Generation of Insurance

Boost Insurance is a next generation insurance platform built from the ground up to power insurtech startups and other consumer technology companies as our distribution partners. We partner with cutting edge startups and consumer brands to create white labeled insurance programs so they can offer any kind of protection to their customers – how they want it, when they’re most likely to buy it, and who they’re most likely to buy it from. We’ve simplified the process for both insurance and non-insurance-focused companies by turning it into a true platform solution.

We’re powering the future of insurance by combining modern technology with an insatiable appetite for new and unique insurance products. Our platform is half tech and half analog (this is insurance, after all). We are a 50-state licensed Property & Casualty (P&C) Managing General Agency (MGA) appointed by an ‘A’-Rated insurance carrier. We provide bespoke, end-to-end insurance program development and ongoing management for our partners. Boost’s modern API-driven policy administration system can programmatically rate, quote, bind, and issue insurance policies as well as manage them throughout their life cycles. Plug in and go.
