Born in Technology
We got our start in Chicago's premiere technology facility 1871. As part of Google’s Tech Hub Network this 75,000 sq. ft. membership only facility was established to cultivate and grow ideas for technology based businesses. Being surrounded by this innovative energy fueled our passion to do pet insurance differently. With our love for pets, obsession with technology and background in insurance we built a platform that is entirely focused on making life easier for people and their pets -- or pets and their people ;-)
