Newfront scales by hiring brokers who join with their book of business.

ABOUT US

Our business is built on the idea that there are certain tasks that humans do really well and others that are better suited for computers and software.

The business is backed by top venture capital firms who would like Newfront to insure their 5,000+ portfolio companies. Our technology automates applications, renewals, certificates, endorsements, and claims.
