The KnowItOwl Mission
We want people to feel good about their insurance
We are not the next Instagram or Fab. We don’t aspire to be. We are KnowItOwl and we’re taking on a much bigger problem: insurance.
A problem with scale. Insurance is a $2 trillion industry. That’s 36 times larger than Google and Facebook combined. Insurers pay their aging sales force a mint to sell insurance the old-fashioned way (with paper, face-to-face). We’re going to bring this into the 21st century.
A problem that’s socially important. Nobody’s helping people figure out insurance – and that’s bad. Under-insured medical problems contribute to over half of all personal bankruptcies and home foreclosures. Bottom line - we’re going to help and create social impact.
A problem in desperate need of a new approach. The consumer problem in insurance is deceptively simple: insurance is hard to sell because people don’t want to think about bad things like death and illness. Insurers just throw money at the problem: advertising, hefty commissions, pushy sales agents. We’re in
The KnowItOwl team brings deep expertise across consumer finance and customer experience, with a special passion for insurance. We hope to bring a fresh perspective and more consumer-friendly approach to insurance. We're not your traditional insurance company and we have no desire to be.
