Key Quotes:

  • “I kind of just had this epiphany that I’ve sold software to insurance agencies, why not sell insurance to software companies?” – Abe Gibson
  • “We’re really primarily just talking about cyber. And when we have that conversation from a risk management perspective, we’re not really talking much about insurance. We’re building enough trust. Because we’re leading with that cyber risk report in that consultative risk management approach, that we can just present to them a complete package that includes all the lines of business that they need.” – Abe Gibson
  • “I feel blessed to have the background that I do, I kind of knew the big players and who I need to talk to you. But, it was still extremely challenging. So I empathize a lot with people that are starting to scratch agencies, because it’s very confusing and very cumbersome.” – Abe Gibson
