Firm targets busy business owners.

Company // Intrepid Direct Insurance

Entrepreneurs // David Kramer, EVP, and Jeremy Marsch, CTO

What They Do // The Intrepid Direct Insurance team’s deep industry knowledge saves franchise restaurant and auto aftermarket
owners 15 percent on premiums, on average, with a 10-minute online application.

“Intrepid Direct uses technology to eliminate the traditional insurance-buying process and delivers most quotes in 24 hours or less, faster than any competitor,” Marsch said. “A team of insurance and industry experts review proposals with clients
and are available any time for personalized support.”

The Inspiration // As operating expenses rise for businesses, Intrepid Direct’s team identified insurance as a controllable yet hidden cost for most owners. Franchise restaurant and auto aftermarket owners have limited time. By operating online and leveraging proprietary industry data, Intrepid Direct’s team found time and cost efficiencies lost in the old insurance quoting system, while preserving high-level customer service.

What’s Next // “Intrepid Direct rolled out an advanced online insurance-quoting portal in early summer, getting quotes to customers even faster and requiring less information than any other quoting process in market for their industries,” Kramer said. “And with introducing coverage in California, Intrepid Direct now insures owners across 37 states.”
