Insurance is Awesome (when it's with Hippo)

Hippo is modernizing the $100 billion home insurance industry by putting customers at the center of everything we do, from the coverage we offer to the customer service we provide. If that wasn’t enough, it’s really just the beginning: Hippo’s true ambition lies in helping people prevent problems with their homes to begin with. Because, at the end of the day, the best home insurance policy is the one you never have to use.
