A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to take a state contract. The catch? I needed business insurance. As a mid-20s writing and social media freelancer, I hadn’t even considered needing insurance (what was going to happen – I’d get a paper cut?), and had no idea how to go about obtaining it. I ended up having to pass on the contract for other reasons, but I have to admit that to this day, I still feel at a loss when it comes to business insurance. So it feels particularly fortuitous that as I’m launching full force into self-employment, Pogo Insurance fell into my lap.
Founded in 2017, Pogo Insurance lives up to its motto “Business is hard. Insurance doesn’t have to be” by making online business insurance from top insurers easily accessibly online for freelancers and other folk who are self-employed. The founders, a married couple, launched the online business insruance tool to cater to those who are changing the workforce: freelancers, ‘solopreneurs’, entrepreneur, 1099ers, independent contractors, startups, and so forth. Their goal? Simplifying insurance: what it is, why you need it, and how to get it.
