Who we are and how we came to be.
In 2015, our founders discovered something startling: 60% of U.S. homes are underinsured. They dove deeper and found that home insurance is sorely outdated, from the cumbersome way it's bought and sold, to the antiquated coverage it contains, to its needlessly high prices. We launched Hippo with the deep belief that homeowners deserve better, cheaper, modern home insurance.
