We welcome entrepreneurs, carriers, brokers, risk management experts, and policyholders to work side-by-side to build businesses and scale ideas that help identify, analyze, mitigate and transfer risk.  

Join our coworking community at Innovation Underwriters’ headquarters at CIC Cambridge in Kendall Square, the heart of greater Boston’s innovation scene with access to renowned universities, research labs, cross-sector businesses, policymakers, and our growing list of strategic partners.  

Showcase your company on the forefront of risk and insurance innovation to visiting scholars and stakeholders, and accelerate your risk solutions to global markets through INNOVATION UNDERWRITERS’ programming and connections.

  • Ready to move your whole team?  CIC’s variety of flexible workspaces and month-to-month rental agreements means your workspace in the INNOVATION UNDERWRITERS hub can evolve with your company’s growth.  

  • Already settled in a workspace in another city? Consider a hotdesk at CIC so you can touchdown at the INNOVATION UNDERWRITERS hub whenever you are in town, or have a foothold for talent acquisition and collaborative projects with members and partners.

  • Planning to expand globally?  INNOVATION UNDERWRITERS hubs will soon open at CIC Tokyo, CIC Rotterdam, and CIC Miami to share opportunities globally.
