About Spot

At Spot, we know that just about everyone thinks insurance has never been cool or exciting. It's boring, complicated, and something we all hope we never use. That’s why we’re turning the insurance industry on its head by building the first lifestyle brand in the insurance world, encouraging our customers to live life to the fullest knowing we've got their back.

Spot is the first insurance company that helps its customers have fun while taking risks, whether learning how to ski, riding a local mountain bike trail, or training to summit Everest. We cover people’s medical bills when shit hits the fan.

We were founded by avid skiers, cyclists, and outdoor enthusiasts, so we understand the risks that come with the territory. When bad things happen, dealing with insurance can make it worse. We believe our community deserves something better.

With over a million customers and growing, we have no intention of slowing down.

We believe in the importance of culture and community and that teams thrive when working in alignment.
