Why Upstart

The financial requirements to launch REsurety are not enormous, but are beyond the personal resources of the founding team. As a pre-operating business, our ability to attract external capital has been limited and the interest we have received includes terms that reflect our financial predicament: caught between a rock and a hard place. As such, Upstart funding would give me personally, and REsurety’s founding team as a whole, the financial breathing room needed to build and de-risk our business to a point where we can attract capital on terms that we believe more accurately reflect our contribution and commitment to REsurety's success.
