What We're Building

Kin is home insurance built from scratch using modern technology. Everyone needs insurance for their house - it's a $100B industry - but it is still done the same way it was done 50 years ago.

* Kin makes it easy for the consumer to get insured - 3 clicks on a phone vs. 3 pages of paperwork and faxing it to an agent.
* We use 100x the amount of data as the traditional insurers which also gives us a pricing and underwriting advantage.
* We bundle our insurance with home services and IoT devices that actually prevent homes from getting damaged, aligning our interests with the customer.
