About Us

vfm-symbol

VouchForMe is built on a premise that insurance can be tailored to each individual.
We are creating an ecosystem where the opinion of the community counts as risk
assessment for an individual who in return benefits from a lower cost of insurance.

We simplify the risk assessment and segmentation for insurance companies while
creating favorable insurance solutions for end customers. Whether it is a car,
home, or business insurance, we have you covered.
