Houston-based online commercial insurance portal Now Insurance Services announced that it has secured an additional $1.25 million in seed funding led by The MFO Group. The company has raised $2.5 million to date after its initial raise in 2019.

NOW Insurance provides small business owners, health care practitioners and other professional classes with general liability, professional liability, and cybersecurity insurance coverages, with plans to expand into other coverage areas. The full-stack commercial insurance platform leverages AI and risk selection to customize a user’s coverage to their exact needs and coverage requirements.

NOW Insurance is an intelligent platform designed to simplify the application process through real-time quotes, and match SMBs and professionals with competitive, customized coverage plans that fit their exact needs.” – Philip Cabaud, NOW Insurance’s co-founder and CEO.
