Canadian Insurtech Apollo to Offer Educators Liability Coverage in California

September 12, 2019

Apollo Insurance Solutions, a Canadian insurance marketplace, has entered the American market with a liability insurance product tailored for educators in California. The product allows consultants, instructors, and therapists to purchase their mandatory liability coverage that school districts require online.

Thanks to a partnership with Jigsaw — a subsidiary brand of Gallagher — practitioners can now immediately get a quote, purchase the insurance via credit card, and have their policy emailed to them in real time by the Apollo Exchange in under five minutes. Because this insurance is mandatory, practitioners often need to acquire it before starting their work with students.

The Apollo Exchange launched in April of 2019, after closing a $1 million angel round of funding and several months of beta testing.

The company is led by Co-Founder and CEO Jeff McCann. The Apollo Exchange in Canada allows brokers to instantly quote, bind, and issue policy documents for hundreds of classes of small business in real time, or white label the exchange to sell directly from their website.
