NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2022 - Get Covered, a leading insurance technology provider for multifamily operators, managers, residents and distribution partners, today announced it has raised $14.5 million in total funding after closing a recent investment round. RET Ventures, State Farm Ventures®, WISE Ventures and LeFrak participated in the round.
A year after Get Covered’s Series A fund raise, Get Covered has announced the closing of its Series A-2 $6 million round. The new funding will empower Get Covered to innovate new products, increase staffing and grow partnerships with insurance carriers, agencies and proptech companies. Get Covered also plans to significantly expand its client base of renters, apartment owner/operators and property managers and strategically grow in new and existing markets.
“Insurance is a fundamental component of renting for residents, owners, operators and property management teams,” said Brandon Tobman, CEO of Get Covered. “Insurance is one of the oldest industries in the world, and it’s also one of the most challenging to change. We are proud of the technology solutions we’ve created that have alleviated many of the friction points in buying and tracking insurance. We are excited to continue growing and providing better experiences for renters and optimizing risk mitigation strategies for operators.”
Founded in 2018 by Brandon Tobman, Dylan Gaines and Ryan Solomon, Get Covered provides insurance technology products and services for the multifamily industry that make buying, selling and tracking insurance as simple and seamless as possible. Get Covered ensures that residents are covered with the community’s minimum required policy and tracks insurance policies throughout the lease term. Embedding insurance tracking within owner/operators’ existing processes, Get Covered allows renters to seamlessly purchase customized insurance policies from A rated carriers. On the backend, owner/operators are equipped with a policy admin portal for certificate of insurance (COI) verification, tracking, billing and policy administration.
In 2022, Get Covered has added more than 600,000 units to its all-in-one activation and COI tracking platform. Get Covered currently operates in 48 states and has been deployed in more than 3,500 apartment communities nationwide.
“Get Covered’s technology-based solution of offering renters insurance as an embedded option within the tenant leasing process is an intriguing approach to meet the needs of more customers,” said Michael Remmes, Vice President of State Farm Ventures. “We believe that our agent-based distribution model in combination with their platform approach to serve the institutionally-managed property market could deliver a strong customer experience for renters.”
