InsureonU: Insurance Resources for Small-Business Owners
Did you know that small businesses create about 64 percent of all new jobs each year in the United States? It's true. Among these small businesses, more than half (52 percent) are based in the business owner's home and a whopping 78.5 percent are single-person operations. (Stats courtesy of the SBA's Frequently Asked Questions PDF.)
When we see numbers like that we think one thing: small-business owners are busy. After all, when you're responsible for running an entire business by yourself, there's not a lot of time to spare for figuring out the complex legal requirements of a business insurance plan. That's why we created InsureonU. In this section of our site, you'll find information and resources to help you navigate the world of small business insurance.
