About FutureProof

FutureProof is a fast-moving, venture-backed insurtech startup that is on a mission to create the first insurer that is truly climate-smart.

We are a small team with a big vision.

 

We believe that the world will only have the incentive to make needed investments in climate adaptation once insurance properly prices climate risk. We have used machine learning in innovative ways to price climate risk from floods and hurricane winds with unprecedented granularity. On the basis of these models, we are building new insurance products that will increase financial and physical resilience to climate change.
