We work hard to make it easy for over 100 professions including handymen, DJs, pet sitters, beauticians, and more to get insurance and take on that next opportunity.

We do this by re-imagining the small business insurance policy from the ground up:

1. Thimble is on-demand.

You can buy policies only for the time you need, whether that’s a month, a day, or even an hour.

2. Thimble is instant.

We’ve removed a ton of barriers from hold music to 100s of previously required questions so you can get a Certificate of Insurance just hours before your next job.

3. Thimble is flexible.

Once you purchase your policy you can extend, change, or even cancel it right from our app.

Taking Off: Our Story

Our founders, Jay Bregman and Eugene Hertz, originally launched Thimble as Verifly in 2016 to bring liability insurance to a growing market of drone operators. Customers loved it, but wanted Thimble to handle their main business insurance, too.

Today, we arrange on-demand insurance solutions for over 100 small business professions. In 2019, we changed our name to Thimble to reflect this evolution.
