About Us
Thimble is quick-thinking insurance for fast-moving businesses. We work hard to make it easy for 140+ professions like handymen, landscapers, DJs, artisans, and mall Santas (yes really) to get the insurance they need to take on every opportunity.
It’s the first business insurance provider that puts customers in control: small businesses of any size can get a policy by the job, month, or year from Thimble in minutes and modify, pause, or cancel anytime.
Thimble is simple, scalable, and flexible, which is why we made MONEY Magazine’s 2021 “Best Insurance for Small Businesses” AND we’re Fast Company’s #1 “Small and Mighty” Company. We’re also rated 4.8 out of 5 stars on Trustpilot and the App Store and have sold over 200,000 policies to more than 65,000 small businesses.
Founded by veteran entrepreneurs Jay Bregman and Eugene Hertz, Thimble is growing the $250 billion business insurance market by making it more accessible: 75% of Thimble customers are first-time business insurance buyers. For that reason and so many more, Thimble has raised over $45 million in backing from IAC (NASDAQ: IAC) and other top venture capital firms.

Green Means GO
Act. Move forward. Learn. You can only make a decision based on the best information you have – so make it.
Own Every Detail
Be ruthlessly precise. Disciplined. Sweat the small stuff.
Simplify, Simplify, Simplify
Get to the point. Make it crystal clear. Cut everything else. It’s our job to make insurance easy – however hard that is for us.
Every Moment Counts
Show up early and ready. Deliver on time or before. Make the most of your time, so others can make the most of theirs.
Stay Human
Treat every person, and their ideas, with respect. Cherish diversity.
