About Capitola

Capitola was founded upon a commitment to bring the best of technology and people together to transform specialty insurance.

Insurance is the bedrock of entrepreneurial business activity; in times of peril, companies rely on risk transfer to ensure their longevity. However, the insurance needs of corporations are complex and require guidance from retail agents, who need the expertise of knowledgeable and responsive wholesalers.  So we created Capitola as the next-generation specialty brokerage for professional lines of commercial insurance, focused on people and fueled by technology to serve insurance better.

Founded in 2021 in California with its research and development center in Tel Aviv, Capitola is backed by top tier venture capital, all of whom share our dedication to bring increased transparency, cutting edge technologies, and superior service to retail brokers and carriers alike.
