Next Insurance is a fast-growing 350+ person startup based in Silicon Valley and is led by a team of experienced entrepreneurs with a history of successful outcomes.

Next has raised over $380 million from top tier investors and is the valley’s latest unicorn, valued at over $1 billion.

If you move fast, customer-focused, and willing to challenge the status quo, Next Insurance might just be your next journey.
