Foxquilt CEO and co-founder Mark Morissette said: “Small business owners should have the opportunity to access fair value business insurance at any point of sale or trading experience with an enterprise partner.
“Our disciplined focus on innovating great technologies and products as the bridge between small business owners and their enterprise partners has translated into valuable, compounding returns of growth and underwriting profitability.
“This collaboration with Markel not only supports the distribution of Foxquilt’s proprietary insurance products but also validates that an innovation leader like Markel believes in our forward-thinking vision of insurance as well.”
Foxquilt’s business model revolves around providing small business insurance seamlessly through an embedded distribution approach.
