We firmly believe that resilient corporations are one of the main pillars of a prosperous society, and that in times of peril, they rely on insurance to ensure their longevity. Unlike small businesses, the insurance needs of medium and large corporations are complex and require expertise that is provided by an indispensable community of commercial insurance professionals.
Capitola was founded with a clear vision in mind: build the technology that empowers insurance professionals to broker better. We believe that humans are a critical part of the insurance industry, but they lack the tools that enable them to focus on what they do best - provide exceptional client service and coverages.
We are a team of passionate individuals with expertise in Insurance, Business and cutting edge Technology. Capitola was founded in 2021 in California, with its R&D center in Tel Aviv. We are proud to have some of the world’s best insurance investors and advisors, and are dedicated to serving the broker and carrier community.
