Assets to access

Modern consumers enjoy more options and choices than any other generation in history. The shift from owned assets to shared access gives them the flexibility to work, live, and move on their terms. It also leaves them exposed to an unprecedented level of financial uncertainty.


Traditional insurance was not built for them.


Changing the world

At Surround, we're reinventing age-old insurance products to serve these new consumers. We're with them as they reach for their dreams with insurance that feels designed for them. We're angel- and venture-backed by insurance and technology veterans who share our vision for a whole new world of customer-centric, technology-enabled insurance.


Our members are changing the world; we’re changing insurance.
