That said, we realize you may want to want to investigate your options before deciding on a course of action. With that in mind, the following guidelines represent a good starting point:
As a baseline of protection, all startups should carry:
- Commercial Property Insurance: Commercial property insurance for startups covers your office, property, and assets in the unfortunate case of a loss or damages.
- Startup General Liability Insurance: General liability insurance is one of the most common and important coverages in the small-business world — well beyond the world of insurance for startups. It should generally be included in every small-business insurance policy. General liability coverage can protect you against financial loss from lawsuits filed against your business.
- Business Income Insurance: Perhaps one of the most important coverages for a bootstrapped organization, this insurance is designed to protect an electrician against an unexpected loss of income. For example, in the unfortunate case of a flood at your office, your business income insurance would help cover lost wages while you rebuild or recover.
Most startups should also seriously consider carrying Directors & Officers and Key Person coverage. Large startups in B-series or C-Series Funding should look at Employment Practices Liability (EPLI) and Commercial Crime coverage.
In many cases, a startup can save money on their premiums by opting to bundle their coverages into a commercial package.
