About Huckleberry

Huckleberry offers simple, fast business insurance—powered by technology. 100% online. 100% easy.

Mission

At Huckleberry, we're on a mission to make insurance work for small businesses. Over the past decade, technology has changed the way we run companies—from accounting and tax prep to customer management and payment processing. But small business owners are still forced to buy workers' comp, general liability, and property insurance via an offline process that can take weeks to complete.

We want to change that by providing business insurance products that are simple, fast, and 100% online.
