CSI & TechAssure - Global Capabilities

The National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) is the premier trade association that represents the U.S. venture capital industry. They are a member-based organization, consisting of venture capital firms that manage pools of risk equity capital dedicated to be invested in high growth, entrepreneurial companies. NVCA’s mission is to foster greater understanding of the importance of venture capital to the U.S. economy, and support entrepreneurial activity and innovation.

We are one of 18 members of TechAssure®, a global group of elite insurance brokers endorsed by the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) to deliver “best of breed” venture capital and private equity insurance solutions and products for their members and portfolio companies.

VentureInsure is the insurance program for members of NVCA and their portfolio companies. Each insurance product has been selected and customized for the unique needs of venture capital firms and the companies they develop. The program has already helped over 200 companies in its first 3 years and has recently added a “no brainer” package policy for VCs that combines Property, General Liability, Auto, Workers Compensation and Umbrella insurance at very competitive rates and customized policy language. Many NVCA members will enjoy savings of over 20% on the insurance products they already have to buy by switching to the VentureInsure package program.

The world of venture capital is facing new challenges and lowering operating costs while improving risk management is more important than ever. But beyond the insurance products, NVCA members benefit from the expertise and consultative style of the member brokers of TechAssureTM. These specialists focus on venture capital firms (“VCAPs”) and their portfolio companies and receive training and education on your unique exposures to risk.

CSI represents every insurance company that is a player in the technology and VC/PE  space, and we have personal relationships with these companies due to the volume of business that we write.  We continuously dedicate considerable time and resources to educating carriers about the unique risk exposures of our clients.  This helps the information technology insurance companies design policies that address these special requirements.  We have an expertise in manuscripting specific information technology insurance contracts to fit your company’s specific risk exposure.
