Founded to protect more, for less
Building a future together
Most people with dependents already know they need life insurance. But millions still don’t have it. That gap is what we’ve worked tirelessly to bridge. We get lives are busy and schedules are unpredictable. That’s why we’re throwing boring phone calls, blood tests and who knows what…out the window. We’re humanizing the approach to term life insurance for the greater good – informed by you.
Our unconventional approach helps get you affordable term life insurance in minutes not weeks. To get there, we had to reimagine traditional industry assumptions, letting technology and big data lead the way. We designed a brand new underwriting framework and built a first-of-its-kind experience to bring life insurance within reach for more people than ever before.
Founded with people in mind
We are both entrepreneurs, husbands, and fathers, who set out to solve a meaningful problem. In late 2015 while on a river rafting trip in Colorado, we started discussing the challenges around life insurance, why it can literally be a painful experience, and the social challenges of millions being under-served, including women. Over the following months, after our kids went to sleep, we’d get together to develop our hypothesis that millions of households are seeking a new solution to help them prepare for a better financial future. Bestow is that solution.
We started Bestow to help families better prepare for their financial future. Life insurance is a great start. The loss of a loved one is exponentially compounded when it’s accompanied by financial loss and mounting pressures to pay for a funeral, debts, housing, food, education, etc.
The challenge is until now, no one had reshaped life insurance to fit consumer preferences. Bestow is one of the most affordable and smart solutions in the market. And we’re just getting started. We’ll develop new products and solutions to advance our goal to help millions become empowered to make great financial decisions.
A team on a mission
The whole should be greater than the sum of its parts. That’s why the Bestow team is comprised of the best talent around building a company reshaping the future of life insurance and changing lives.
