JJ Wade & Associates has been insuring innovative companies since 1990 and our understanding of the unique risks facing these companies is unparalleled. For companies involved in technology, life sciences, venture capital, private equity, clean technology, defense contracting and new media we are able to provide more value for less, when compared to other generalist agencies. Specialization in these industries gives us an edge when negotiating with insurance companies.
Through our involvement with TechAssure, the world's only association of technology insurance brokers, we have access to exclusive insurance products and pricing not available anywhere else. Between the 24 members of TechAssure, we have combined premiums of over $2 Billion, and work with over 4,000 technology, life science and clean tech clients. This gives us more insurance company clout than most agents and brokers are able to acheive.
As the exclusive member of TechAssure in North and South Carolina, we are also exclusively endorsed by the National Venture Capital Association. We are also the Affinity Partner for the North Carolina Technology Association. These endorsements reflect our commitment and dedication to the technology and life science industries, as well as the companies that fund them.
We have a variety of resources available to our clients to help them better manage risk. Our exclusive intellectual property has come to be relied on by innovative companies throughout the southeast. We have the only benchmarking reporting system in the industry that calculates what your peers are buying, who they buy it from and how much they pay for it - which spans across over 30 countries and from over 4,000 technology and life science clients worldwide. We also have a wide-variety of contractual review tools and due diligence resources available. TechAssure membership also allows us entrance into a private database of thousands of risk mitigation documents.
